The British Society for Phenomenology invites submissions for their annual conference, to be hosted in Brighton from 11 – 13 September.

Conference Date: September 11 – 13th 2017

Conference Theme

We are looking for submissions exploring phenomenological theory or its practical application. We would welcome papers that address phenomenology across a broad range of areas and issues including, but not limited to, the arts, ethics, medical humanities, mental health, education, technology, feminism, politics and political governance. We would also welcome contributions that throw a new light on both traditional phenomenological thinkers such as Husserl, Heidegger, Jaspers, Scheler, Sartre, de Beauvoir and Merleau-Ponty, and the themes associated with classical phenomenology.

We are an open and welcoming Society, committed to promoting phenomenology. Our aim is to create a convivial environment for public and audience engagement with phenomenology, so papers and abstracts should be composed with accessibility in mind.

We also wish to have a student panel and welcome submissions from postgraduate researchers.


Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words via our online form by Sunday 16th July. You can submit your abstract by clicking here.

Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the BSP executive. Each accepted paper will be for 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions, separated into panel sessions.
