SSHAP 2019 (Boston): Call for Abstracts/Papers

The eighth annual conference of the Society for the Study of the History of Analytical Philosophy (SSHAP) will be held at Boston University in Boston, MA on June 17-19, 2019. It is locally organized by Juliet Floyd with the assistance of James Pearson and Sanford Shieh and is being sponsored by the Philosophy Department and the Dean of Arts and Sciences at Boston University.

The 2019 SSHAP meeting is being held in conjunction with the Bertrand Russell Society whose conference (June 20-22, 2019) convenes immediately after the SSHAP meeting at University of Massachusetts-Amherst. It is locally organized by Kevin C. Klement. The organizers hope that SSHAP conferees will also want to attend the BRS meeting and vice versa. There are many areas of shared interest and possibilities for fruitful exchange. We do ask that those who wish to submit papers for both meetings not submit the very same paper.

Invited Speakers:

Annalisa Coliva (University of California, Irvine)

Sandra Lapointe (McMaster University)

Thomas Ricketts (University of Pittsburgh)

SSHAP – Call for Abstracts or Papers

SSHAP is an international organization aimed at promoting discussion in all areas of scholarship concerning the development of philosophical logic, philosophy of language, the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, ethics and metaethics, the philosophy of science, and epistemology. It welcomes scholars interested in the many ways in which the disciplines were influenced by thinkers such as Bolzano, Brentano and his school, Husserl, Frege, Russell, the Vienna Circle, Wittgenstein, Tarski, Quine and the Polish school, for instance, but also seeks to promote work engaging with lesser know figures and trends.   SSHAP invites submissions for its 2019 annual conference. Paper submissions in all areas of the history of analytic philosophy are welcome.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15, 2019.

In the past, some of the papers presented at the annual conference were published in the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy.
