The 27th Oxford Graduate Philosophy Conference


 The 27th Annual Oxford Philosophy Graduate Conference, will be held on the 11th-12th November 2023 at the University of Oxford.

This highly anticipated event enjoys a reputation for being one of the most prestigious philosophy conferences at graduate level in the world. 

We invite submissions from Graduate students working in Philosophy. 

Papers can be on any topic in philosophy. We aim to represent a broad range of philosophical debates and traditions in our final selection, across both theoretical and practical philosophy. 

Each student presentation will be followed by a response, typically from a member of the Oxford Philosophy Faculty.

We are also delighted to be able to announce our three keynote speakers at this year’s conference:  

Julia Driver (Austin/ St. Andrews)
Cécile Fabre (Oxford) and 
Crispin Wright (NYU/ Stirling)

Presenting at the conference offers an excellent opportunity to showcase your work to an enthusiastic and welcoming audience.

We particularly encourage submissions by philosophers from groups underrepresented in the discipline.

Eligibility for submission: All current graduate students in philosophy are eligible to apply, except those studying at Oxford at the time of the conference.
