94th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association

10 July 2020 @ 5:00 pm12 July 2020 @ 7:00 pm

This year’s joint session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association is taking place online:

The Joint Session is the premier UK general philosophy conference, held annually during the summer by the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. It has taken place at nearly every major university across the United Kingdom and in Ireland. This year it is taking place online.

Since 1910, the Joint Session has grown to become the largest gathering of philosophers in the country, attracting prestigious UK and international speakers working in a broad range of philosophical areas. Inaugurated by the incoming President of the Mind Association, the Joint Session includes symposia, open and postgraduate sessions, and a range of satellite conferences.

The conference will take place from 17.00 on Friday 10 July to 19.00 Sunday 12 July (all times BST). The Plenary Sessions, the Postgraduate Sessions, and the SWIP Sessions will be pre-recorded videos that we release at the start of the conference, with speakers finding time to respond to your comments and questions over the course of the weekend.

The Open Sessions, to reflect their more informal work-in-progress feel, and the logistics of dealing with so many, will hosted on a website of the speaker’s choosing, and we will link to them from this website.

The annual general meeting of the Mind Association ordinarily takes place at the Joint Session. This year it will be held online from 13.00 on Friday 10 July. The AGM is open to all members of the Mind Association. If you would like to receive an invitation to attend and/or copies of the Director’s and Treasurer’s reports, please contact the Association’s administrator in advance at mindassoc@gmail.com.

There will also be some other events and activities taking place during the weekend, such as a philosophically themed Pub Quiz run by University Challenge alumnus Nikhil Venkatesh.

Attending the conference online is free, but you have to provide your own finger buffet.

Conference attendees must be members of either the Mind Association or the Aristotelian Society.
