Postgraduate Conferences 2019

The Royal Institute of Philosophy will sponsor two postgraduate conferences each year.


The Institute welcomes proposals for postgraduate conferences planned for  2019/2020.



Personhood and the Self

In 2018, the University of Manchester presented a Royal Institute of Philosophy conference series for postgraduate and early career researchers on the topic of Personhood and Selfhood, with additional support from the AHRC North-West Doctoral Training Partnership.

Powers, Teleology, and Intentionality

In 2018, the University of Durham held a conference investigating whether powers should be thought of as intentional entities, or perhaps instead teleological ones, and then exploring what relevance this might have for questions within philosophy of mind and consciousness.
