The 2021 Swedish Congress of Philosophy

Lund, Sweden  June 11th - June 13th, 2021

Filosofidagarna 2021 moves to 2022!

As previously announced, the organizers of Filosofidagarna 2021 have - due to the current Covid-19 pandemic - decided to cancel the 2021 congress which was scheduled to take place 11th - 13th of June in Lund. 

The organizers are now delighted to announce that the congress has been rescheduled to take place 10th - 12th of June 2022! 

More information regarding deadlines will be available in due time. 


The Covid-19 situation in Sweden (and elsewhere) being what it is with a possible third wave approaching and vaccination dragging on, we, the organizers, have decided to cancel the 2021 Swedish Congress of Philosophy - Filosofidagarna. We regret this very much but given the current situation and all the uncertainty and risk involved it is, we believe, the only sensible thing to do at this point. 

The congress was scheduled to take place 11th - 13th of June in Lund. We have considered the option of moving the congress online but we decided that the quality and special character of the congress would suffer too much from such a transition. 

Best wishes, 

Erik J. Olsson, Chairman 

Toni Rønnow-Rasmussen, Secretary
