CFA: Hsgb Annual Conference: “Hegel Today” (3-4 September, 2020)

We are glad to inform you that a call for abstracts for the annual conference of the Hegel Society of Great Britain is open. The conference will be held at St Edmund Hall (Oxford) on September 3-4, 2020.

The deadline for submitting the abstracts is May 11, 2020. 


Due to the current worldwide health crisis, it is possible that this year’s conference may have to be cancelled. We are hoping, however, that it will go ahead and we are planning for it to do so. Accordingly, the Hegel Society of Great Britain invites submissions from current and recent PhD students for the 2020 conference. Two slots are available for junior researchers, and papers are welcome on the theme of Hegel Today. The idea behind the conference is to be wide-ranging and to consider various aspects of Hegel’s continuing importance for philosophy, other disciplines and indeed contemporary life more broadly. We are interested in papers on any aspect of Hegel’s philosophy and / or his influence, papers that compare Hegel with other thinkers, and papers that expose modernity to Hegel’s critical eye (or, indeed, that expose Hegel’s thought to the critical eye of modernity).

Applicants must either be currently registered for a PhD or have passed their viva / defense since January 1, 2017.

Presentation time will be 25 minutes + 20 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts (no more than 300 words) should be sent in MSWord as an attachment to:

Abstracts should be prepared for double-blind review by removing any identification details. The body of the email should include the following details: name, paper title, institutional position, affiliation, email address, name of the principal supervisor. Additionally, current PhD students should state when they began their PhD, and recent PhD students should provide the date of their viva / defense and the names of their examiners.

Notification of acceptance by June 8, 2020.

Organizers: Stephen Houlgate (University of Warwick), Sebastian Stein (University of Heidelberg), Robert Stern (University of Sheffield).
