Public Philosophy Network Conference

The Public Philosophy Network has a new website:

We are no longer monitoring this site and it will be taken down shortly.

The next conference will be held October 17-19, 2019 in East Lansing, MI, hosted by Michigan State University.

Dear PPN Members, 

We are extending the early registration discount until 8/29/19. If you registered between the early registration discount registration ending and now, i.e., you paid the $200 registration fee, email Nancy McHugh at and she will work on getting you a refund, if you would like one.  The link to the registration page is:


Here is how to use the conference discount code to get the early registration discount.

BEFORE selecting the number of tickets--click on the upper right "Enter Promotional Code"

Enter the code:  SAVE50



Also, some people have been having a hard time making hotel reservations. The conference code for the Kellogg Center lodging is: 1911PUBLIC. There are still 40 or so rooms available.  I just got off the phone with the Kellogg Hotel desk and their system is down until Sunday.
