Southeast Philosophy of Education Society logo

We invite you to participate in the 73rd annual meeting of the Southeast Philosophy of Education Society (SEPES) in Decatur, Georgia on February 19-20, 2021.

SEPES has a long tradition of providing a friendly forum for dialogue and the exchange of philosophical ideas related to a broad variety of educational topics. We welcome presentations from graduate students, scholars, and practitioners from both within and beyond the social foundations of education.

While there is no particular theme to the conference, SEPES encourages participants to engage with philosophical ideas concerning education at various levels. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to, the following: the relationship of school to society; democracy and education; issues of diversity and commonality in education; neoliberalism, neoconservatism, white supremacy, and conservative modernization in education; education in the Anthropocene; contemporary theory in education; abolitionist or antiracist approaches to education; analyses of history or policy in education; methodological approaches in educational research.

We invite proposals on these and other topics that meaningfully engage philosophy in the consideration of problems of educational relevance. The proposal deadline is November 15th, 2020 and should be no more than 500 words, excluding references.

Submit proposals online through the following link:

We hope to see you in the new year!
Maureen Flint, SEPES Program Chair

**Please note that the SEPES leadership is making every effort to meet in person while simultaneously gauging possibilities for other meeting formats. Please see proposal link to provide feedback as we plan!
