The 2017 annual conference of the Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy (ASCP) will take place at the University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay Campus, 29 November - 1 December, with a dedicated day for postgraduate development and the opening reception on 28 November. The ASCP provides a broad intellectual forum for scholars working within, or in communication with, European philosophical traditions. Its annual conference is the largest event devoted to continental philosophy in Australasia. For the 2017 conference, we seek to challenge commonplace understandings of the boundaries of scholarship in continental philosophy, with a particular focus on the role of feminist, postcolonial and ecological thought in transforming the key questions that drive philosophical inquiry.
