Our Roots

The BPPA is a volunteer association of postgraduate philosophy students in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The association was formed as a way to provide an active community of support and advice to young philosophers, bridging geographical boundaries between their different universities and departments, and make contact with each other. The BPPA is best known for its Annual Conference and Careers Advice Day, and the twice-yearly Masterclasses.

As a community of philosophers, we widely support all initiatives to increase the diversity within the subject area, and welcome all postgraduate philosophers to use the BPPA and benefit from its services.

Please feel free to browse our website and get in touch with your comments. Follow us on facebook for up-to-date news, or email us at british.postgraduate.philosophy@gmail.com with any enquiries. The committee look forward to hearing from you; let us know what we can do for you!


 Call for Abstracts 2018

This year’s British Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BPPA) annual conference and careers day will be held at the University of Birmingham on 3rd-5th July 2018.

We welcome submissions on all topics across philosophy. To fit alongside our keynotes and encourage a diversity of topics we would particularly like to receive abstracts on the topics of: global ethics, feminist philosophy, philosophy of psychiatry, philosophy of science, metaphysics and epistemology. As part of our commitment to celebrating the diversity in philosophy we would especially welcome abstracts by and about minorities in philosophy.
