    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.

    The deadline for abstract and paper submissions is midnight, January 9, 2023. For detailed instructions, please visit

    Canadian Jacques Maritain Association

    Spring Conference

    May 29-30, 2023 (to be confirmed)

    York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada


    In association with

    the Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences


    the Canadian Philosophical Association


    Theme: Maritain Today – After 50 Years


    The Canadian Jacques Maritain Association (CJMA) will meet for its 2023 spring conference at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, under the auspices of the Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Canadian Philosophical Association. The bilingual conference is scheduled for May 29-30, 2023. The deadline for abstract submissions is January 31, 2023.

    The theme for this conference will be “Maritain Today – After 50 Years”. 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of Jacques Maritain’s death in 1973. To commemorate this event we wish to bring together scholars who will speak about Maritain’s enduring legacy for modern and postmodern culture and society and to expound on the many ways that his ideas can help us to address the important challenges of life in the 21st century.

    To this end, we invite paper proposals in English or in French that deal with some aspect of Jacques Maritain’s writings in relation to current trends and developments in the world. Since Maritain wrote on many diverse subjects, from ethics and politics, to metaphysics and aesthetics, to logic and history, the scope of the conference is framed intentionally broadly.

    Please send by e-mail a presentation abstract of no more than 500 words and any correspondence regarding the conference to: 

    Dr. Nikolaj Zunic

    President, Canadian Jacques Maritain Association

    Department of Philosophy, St. Jerome’s University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

    The deadline for abstract submissions is January 31, 2023.
