Local organizer: Paul Wilford ( 
Deadline for submission of papers (email to January 31, 2018

The Hegel Society's 2018 Biennial Meeting will examine tragedy and comedy in Hegel’s philosophy. Discussions that are pertinent to the issues of tragedy and comedy can be found throughout Hegel’s thought, from his early writings and the Jena Phenomenology of Spirit, to his later work on history, aesthetics, and religions, as well as in his practical philosophy. Papers are welcome that address any of Hegel’s treatments of these topics or indeed any of the philosophical or historical issues these discussions give rise to.

Submissions are limited to 6,000 words. Later adjustments must remain within this limit. Submissions must be formatted for blind review and accompanied by an abstract of no more than 300 words. They must be complete essays; draft proposals are not acceptable. All papers should be in English.

Although papers presented at meetings of the Hegel Society of America are usually published as a collection, publication cannot be guaranteed. By submitting a paper, however, the author agrees to reserve publication for HSA proceedings if the paper is accepted for the program, and if the program is accepted for publication.

Please send papers (as PDF files) to:

Mark Alznauer, Program Chair
