BIPPA Regional Conference for the East and South East

With the generous support of 


The British and Irish Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BIPPA) is delighted to announce that we are now inviting submissions of papers to be considered for our Regional Conference for the East and South East on the History of Hindu, South-Asian and Chinese Philosophy, broadly conceived. The conference is scheduled to take place the 24th of September 2022, at King’s College London. The deadline for expression of interest is the 25th of July at 12pm GMT. 

As this is a regional conference, we are accepting proposals for talks in any area of the history of Hindu, South-Asian and Chinese Philosophy from postgraduate students in East and South-East England, including London, only (but keep an eye out for the calls for our other regional conferences, if you are not based on the region). If you are unsure whether your university belongs to this region, please check the list of universities included below. People who have previously completed a postgraduate degree in philosophy and are in the transition to another are also welcome, regardless of their enrolment status. We especially encourage applications from all who identify as members of underrepresented groups in academia. Travel bursaries will be available for students who are not based in London. We will also be able to provide childcare support for presenters with caring responsibilities. For any further information, don’t hesitate to contact us at

Speakers will be asked to prepare a presentation of around 20 minutes and take friendly and constructive feedback from audience members. To express interest, please fill out this minimal application, so we can clearly identify your submission and know something about you:
