Call for Papers: 2023 Meeting

Theme: Russell in the Jazz Age

The Bertrand Russell Society will hold its annual meeting from Friday, June 16 to Sunday, June 18, 2023, at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City. The Bertrand Russell Society is an international non-profit scholarly organization dedicated to the life, work, and causes of the philosopher Bertrand Russell (May 18th, 1872–February 2nd, 1970).

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the BRS Annual Meeting, please submit the paper through our website, at the following link:

Special emphasis will be given to Russell beginning work on the 2nd edition of Principia Mathematica, the centennial publication of The Prospects of Industrial Civilization (with the collaboration of his then-wife Dora) as well as his many popular writings during the Jazz Age.  But we welcome papers on any aspect of Russell’s personal life and his thought, work, and legacy. We also welcome proposals for other activities that might be appropriate for the meeting (e.g., a master class on a work by Russell). The abstract should be no longer than two paragraphs. The deadline for submissions is April 2nd, 2023.

There is a time limit of 20 minutes for presentation. An additional 10 minutes are allotted for discussion. We are planning a hybrid conference, with some presentations in person on campus and others via Zoom. In-person presentations will get priority, should space restrictions become unmanageable.
