Conference for undergraduates

For those of you interested in further study and a career in academia, think about attending this or even submitting a presentation:


To Whom it May Concern,

I am president of the philosophy society at the University of Reading, and editor-in-chief of the society’s undergraduate journal, Laterális. We have recently opened up submissions for our 6th undergraduate conference (, the proceedings of which will be published in the upcoming 3rd volume of Laterális. We will be considering submissions from across the UK, and on any philosophical topic, from undergraduates in any degree programme. As with the last conference, I’m currently emailing philosophy departments across the country in order to encourage submissions, and I would be very grateful if you could circulate information about the current call for papers among undergraduates. I’ve attached our poster, which has all the important information on it. Submissions can be up to 3000 words in length, though there is a soft word-limit, in that longer submissions will be considered if they are particularly outstanding. The deadline will fall on the 15th of January, with the conference to follow a month later, on February the 15th. Previous issues of our journal are available on our academia.edupage:

Best regards,

Michael Bevan
