Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the fifty-fourth conference of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, 2019. Submissions should have a philosophical bearing on education and may vary from an examination of a philosophical issue in its connection with education to a philosophical analysis of some aspect of current educational theory, research, policy or practice. The educational bearing of the paper should be rendered explicit in the text and, normally, in the title. Three sessions will be reserved for invited plenary papers. The rest of the conference will be devoted to submissions responding to this Call. All submissions must be unpublished material; i.e. the material must not have been published previously, or must not be material that has already been submitted for publication to a journal or other publication outlet. (See Frequently Asked Questions)

The Society is keen to receive high quality submissions addressing themes under-represented in recent conferences. These may include:

  1. Informal and non-formal education
  2. Race and ethnicity issues in education
  3. Specific school curriculum areas

The PESGB Annual Conference does not have a specific theme however so submissions are welcome from all research areas in the philosophy of education.

Intending contributors are asked to read the Frequently Asked Questions in conjunction with this Call for Papers.

Submission Deadline: Monday 3 December 2018.
