The Canadian Society for Continental Philosophy annual conference will be held October 27th to 30th, 2022 King’s College University at Western University in London, Ontario. We invite submissions on any theme relevant to the broad concerns of Continental Philosophy. However, this year’s conference will highlight work on the theme of Continental Philosophy in dialogue with diverse global traditions.

Confirmed plenary speakers include Yoko Arisaka (University of Hildesheim), Bret W. Davis (Loyola University Maryland), Grégori Jean (Université Côte d’Azur), and William Paris (University of Toronto).  

You may submit in the form of either:
