Submit an Abstract

The PHP Conference offers students from any institution the opportunity to present on any topic situated in the fields of philosophy, history, and politics.

The submission window is now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted and we'll see you at the conference!

Abstract Submission Do's and Don't's

  • DO keep your abstract to 200 words or less.
  • DO make sure that your subject can be clearly related back to one or more of our three disciplines, even if the paper was not written for a Philosophy, History or Politics class.
  • DO make sure that your abstract is understandable, and gives a clear snapshot of what you plan to talk about in your presentation. If your ideas are too abstract or generalized, you may be asked to revise or resubmit.
  • DON'T submit your abstract after the deadline.
  • DON'T submit more than 2 abstracts. If you were intending on submitting more than 2 pieces of work for review, please choose your favourites prior to submitting.
  • DON'T submit your complete paper. We only require your abstract in order for you to present at the conference. You will only need to submit your full paper if you would like it to be reviewed for publication by our PHP Research Journal editorial board after the conference.

Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to reading your submission!
