The Joint Session is the premier UK general philosophy conference, held annually during the summer by the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. It has taken place at nearly every major university across the United Kingdom and in Ireland.
Since 1910, the Joint Session has grown to become the largest gathering of philosophers in the country, attracting prestigious UK and international speakers working in a broad range of philosophical areas. Inaugurated by the incoming President of the Mind Association, the Joint Session includes symposia, open and postgradaute sessions, and a range of satellite conferences.
The 98th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association will be held at the University of Birmingham from 12 to 14 July 2024
Ten Joint Session subsidies are available to student and unwaged members of either the Aristotelian Society (categories 3-5 only) or the Mind Association. The subsidy will cover 75% of the following: (a) a full registration fee; (b) meal costs; and (c) the cost of standard accommodation for no more than three nights. The remaining costs are paid for by the applicant.
