The Canadian Society for Continental Philosophy will hold its annual conference from October 2-4, 2014, in Vancouver, hosted by the Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University.

We invite papers or panels on any theme relevant to the broad concerns of Continental philosophy. Please submit complete papers (no more than 4000 words), along with a brief abstract (150 words). If you are submitting a panel, then please submit 3 complete papers (no more than 2500 words each), along with brief abstracts for each paper (150 words).
