2019 Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy Conference

University of Melbourne

4 – 6 December 2019

Join us for the 2019 Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy Conference

The 2019 Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy Conference will be held at the University of Melbourne, 4-6 December.

The ASCP aims to provide a broad intellectual forum for academics and postgraduates working in the European philosophical tradition. Its annual conference is the largest event devoted to European philosophy in Australasia.


Rebecca Comay (University of Toronto)

Martin Hägglund (Yale University)

Samantha Matherne (Harvard University)

There will be a plenary panel on the work of Justin Clemens (University of Melbourne)


We invite proposals for papers, panels and streams for the 2019 ASCP conference, which will be held at the University of Melbourne from the 4th to the 6th of December, with a postgraduate and ECR day on the 3rd. We seek papers on topics relevant to Continental philosophy, broadly defined. We particularly encourage submissions from members of groups who are traditionally underrepresented in philosophy. We welcome the participation of postgraduate and early career researchers.

Abstracts must be submitted through the submission portal by the 13th of September; presenters can request a 30 or 45-minute slot. Panel organisers must submit all information – titles, abstracts, speaker details – on behalf of participants (this can be done by selecting ‘Panel proposal’ as the presentation type).


The Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy provides a bursary for a limited number of conference participants who are either students or under-employed early career academics, in recognition of the significant contribution of these members of the ASCP. The bursary is named for a dear colleague and founding member of the ASCP who died in 2016.

HDR students and ECRs who submit an abstract are invited to apply by completing the application form (see the button below) and sending it to Richard Colledge []. Bursary applications will be assessed by an ASCP committee on the basis of a range of considerations including applicants’ access to forums in which to present their work, their stage of candidacy/career, the distance of travel required to attend the conference, and equity and diversity considerations.
