The Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy aims to provide a broad intellectual forum for professional academics and postgraduates researching topics in Contemporary European philosophy, and it is the premier reference point for people working within the diverse fields of Continental/European Philosophy in the Australasian region.
The 2014 ASCP Conference will be held on the Melbourne campus of Australian Catholic University, from 4-6 December.
A call for papers and panel sessions has been issued. Papers are invited in all areas of the broadly-defined field of Continental Philosophy. There is no special conference theme, though a series of potential conference streams have been identified.
As with previous ASCP conferences, we warmly invite and encourage the participation of postgraduate students.
After the conference there will be a call for submissions for a special ASCP conference issue of Parrhesia: A Journal of Critical Philosophy.
It is with great sadness that we learned of the sudden death of Prof. Dr. Laszlo Tengelyi, who passed away on 19 July. His home department at the Universitat Wuppertal has a warm and fitting obituary for him on its homepage: http://www.philosophie.uni-wuppertal.de. On behalf of the Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy community and Australian Catholic University, we the organising committee of the 2014 conference offer our heartfelt sympathies to Prof. Tengelyi's family and his many friends and colleagues. Prof. Tengelyi was to offer a keynote address at our conference in December, and we have left the abstract for his address on our website. He will be remembered at our conference in December.
