Submission deadline:
May 9, 2022

The Hegel Society of Great Britain invites submissions from current and recent PhD students for the annual conference of the Hegel Society of Great Britain, organized jointly in 2022 with the Internationale Hegel-Vereinigung. Two slots are available for junior researchers. Papers are welcome on the theme of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. The idea behind the conference is to be wide-ranging and to consider the continuing importance for Hegel’s legal, moral, social and political philosophy for philosophy itself, for other disciplines and indeed for contemporary life more broadly. We are interested in papers on any aspect of Hegel’s philosophy of right and / or its 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 6, 2022.

Organizers: Stephen Houlgate (University of Warwick), Dina Emundts (Freie Universität Berlin), Sebastian Stein (Universität Heidelberg), Robert Stern (University of Sheffield).
