The Philosophy of the City Research Group has hosted its first international event in New York in 2013. Ever since the annual conferences and summer colloquia have been the central activities of a growing community of scholars sharing their passion for philosophy and the city.


There is no way to hold such international events in times of a pandemic in a responsible manner. The PotC RG’s board of directors, therefore, puts on hold all events planned for 2020 and 2021.


We would like to thank the prospective organizers and hope that we can follow up on your kind invitation in the foreseeable future.


For the time being, we are planning to experiment with alternative formats for meetings and publications. We are looking forward to seeing our community grow and staying in contact through different means.


24 hrs of Philosophy of the City

On May 17, 2021, we will celebrate 24 hours of Philosophy of the City. To find out more about this very special event, please visit our conference website.

The deadline for abstracts has been extended to March 22, 2021, to safeguard the diversity of the presentations. We especially invite non-EU and non-US based scholars to present their work.
