Call for Papers 

Annual Meeting 


The Canadian Philosophical Association



29 May - 1 June, 2023

2023 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 

York University

Toronto, ON


The Canadian Philosophical Association invites submissions of papers, abstracts, and Invited Symposium proposals for its 2023 annual meeting. This meeting is part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences and will take place May 29 – June 1 alongside meetings of other learned societies at York University in Toronto, ON. For the first time, the CPA meeting will include a series of special sessions, each of which will pair two prominent philosophers on a topic of shared interest. For its 2023 annual meeting, the CPA is delighted to announce the participation of Dorit Bar-On, Margaret Graver, Brad Inwood, Antti Kauppinen, Eric Marcus, Adam Pautz, Jonathan Schaffer, and Christine Tappolet.

As in previous years, the CPA meeting will also feature concurrent colloquia and symposia, and a plenary keynote given by a distinguished philosopher and sponsored by the Canadian Journal of Philosophy. Every area of philosophy will be represented at the CPA meeting, with several hundred philosophers attending from across the globe.

The program committee anonymously referees abstracts as well as full papers and will consider proposals for Invited Symposia. Submissions in all areas of philosophy are welcome. The CPA is committed to organizing an accessible and inclusive meeting.

A number of prizes are awarded by the Association for essays submitted for the Annual Meeting: two faculty essay prizes (one tenured, one non-tenured) and up to three student essay prizes (one student prize is reserved for each official language). The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences will again offer the Congress Graduate Merit Award (CGMA) program to support graduate students at Congress. In each year’s December issue of Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review, prize winners from that year's Annual Meeting will be announced and a short list of exceptional papers that have been vetted by journal reviewers will be published. Prize winners are encouraged to submit their publication-ready papers to Dialogue early.
