The BSP Annual Conference is a longstanding and respected feature of the UK academic scene, providing a friendly and supportive forum for inter-disciplinary discussion. We actively seek to explore the interface between the theory and history of phenomenology and its practice across multiple perspectives, from practitioners and philosophers, including both the European / Continental and Anglo-American / Analytic traditions, as well as postgraduate researchers.
