The BSHP has an annual conference, usually in the spring, at which the Annual General Meeting is held. We also organize or sponsor other conferences, often in collaboration with another society or a university department.

In this section there is information about both past conferences and forthcoming conferences, together with information about our Conference Funding Schemes.

If you have any questions or ideas for possible conferences, please contact Prof. Maria Rosa Antognazza (

As part of our commitment to equality and diversity, the BSHP is a member of the BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme. The Scheme aims to assist UK philosophy departments, learned societies and journals in ensuring that they have policies and procedures in place that encourage the representation of women in philosophy.
