The Bertrand Russell Society (BRS), an international organization dedicated to the work and memory of the philosopher Bertrand Russell, will hold its annual meeting at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut from June 2 to June 4, 2017.

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the BRS Annual Meeting, please contact Professor Tim Madigan at  We welcome papers on any aspect of Russell’s life, thought, work, and legacy. We also welcome proposals for other activities that might be appropriate for the meeting (e.g., a master class on an essay by/about Russell). The abstract should be no longer than two paragraphs. The deadline for submission is May 1, 2017.

There is a time limit of 15 minutes for presentations. There will be an additional 15 minutes allotted for discussion.

There will be a panel discussion on the centenary of Principles of Social Reconstruction (Why Men Fight), as well as student poster presentations on the Life and Times of Russell.

Further details about the annual meeting (registration, etc.) will be posted at the Bertrand Russell Society website:
