Society for Philosophy
The SPP sponsors an annual meeting, usually held in June. Meetings consist of invited lectures and symposia, contributed papers, and a Presidential address. Social events include a receptions and lunch meetings. SPP encourages suggestions for the invited portion of the program for upcoming meetings. These should be directed to this year's Program Co-Chairs. We also encourage members (especially non-philosophers) to submit contributed papers to the meeting.
The SPP Diversity Committee holds sessions at the annual meeting. In addition, in 2011 there was a meeting, chaired by Valerie Tiberius and Carrie Figdor, regarding the APA-funded project to use SPP expertise to begin experimentally Studying the Gender Gap in Philosophy. The resulting report is was published in Hypatia in 2012, Volume 27 (4):949-957.
* As a result of moving meeting time from fall to spring, no meeting was held between fall 1974 and spring 1976.
