Call for abstracts


Philosophy and Education: Exploring their interaction and dynamic relationship


You are invited to submit an abstract to participate in the Philosophy of Education Workshop at the Centre for Knowledge and Society (CEKAS) of the University of Aberdeen on the 1st of May, 2019.


Keynote speaker: Dr Ben Kotzee (Education, Birmingham)


We welcome papers from post-graduate students and early career researchers who work on topics at the intersection of philosophy and education.


Both continental and analytic approaches will be considered. Some possible topics involve – but are not limited to – problems and issues from the following research areas:

  • Aims and Nature of Education;

  • Moral and Political Issues in Education;

  • Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum;

  • Virtue Epistemology, Social Epistemology and their Relationship with Education;

  • Epistemology of Education;

  • Methodology in Educational Research;

  • Philosophy for Children or Philosophy in Education.

We encourage papers that will make concrete proposals and communicate ideas employable in educational policies for schools and universities.


We welcome submissions of abstracts up to 500 words (excluding references). Please note that each presentation will be 45 minutes long, followed by a 25-minute Q&A session. Only submissions in English will be considered. In the selection process of the speakers special attention will be paid to gender balance issues.


Each abstract should be fully anonymized for the purposes of blind review process. Please send as an attachment titled “ABSTRACT”. Please also attach a separate document, titled “CONTACT DETAILS” inclusive of your name, your expected degree or academic position, and your university affiliation.


To submit your work or for further inquiries please contact the workshop organizers: Christos Georgakakis c.georgakakis@abdn.ac.uk and Alessio Persichetti a.persichetti@abdn.ac.uk

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is the 15th of March, 2019; we aim to make a decision by April, 2019.
