BPPA Conference 2015 CFO

The British Postgraduate Philosophy Association Invitation for Applications
to Organise and Host the Annual Conference and Careers Day 2015

The BPPA Annual Conference
Now in its 18th year, the BPPA annual conference began in 1997 with the dual aims of featuring the highest quality postgraduate work in philosophy, and finding creative ways to satisfy the development needs of current graduate students. The preferred format includes a traditional two-day postgraduate philosophy conference, and an entire day devoted to career preparation. To our knowledge, this particular programme is not offered by any other graduate philosophy conference in the world. The format has proved to be widely successful and the BPPA are always open to further innovation so as to benefit the diverse expectations of the current postgraduate community.

Call for Nominations

The British Postgraduate Philosophy Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting on September 10th at The British Postgraduate Philosophy Conference at The University of Leeds.

Report from British Philosophical Association Executive Meeting

In December 2013 BPPA were asked to nominate a postgraduate representative to the Executive Committee of the BPA. At the subsequent BPPA committee meeting Neil McDonnell was nominated.

Prior to meeting with the executive the BPPA committee met to discuss what issues could be raised. An email had been sent asking regional reps to forward what concerns they wished to have raised but no issues were forthcoming. Three items were agreed:

Minorities and Philosophy

*Posted on behalf of MAP*

To interested academic philosophers in the UK:

In order to examine and address issues of participation faced by minority and underrepresented groups in academic philosophy (e.g. gender, race, native-language, sexual orientation, class, and disability minorities), a number of UK departments have recently started to build a UK network of chapters of MAP ( www.mapforthegap.com ).
