For this year's conference we invite papers on the theme of "Time."

Abstracts of 500 words, or complete papers, should be submitted to
no later than March 1, 2024.

The aim of the Pacific Association for the Continental Tradition is to provide a platform for philosophical dialogue on the West Coast. The annual conference alternates between Seattle (Seattle University), Hawaiʻi (University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo), San Francisco (University of San Fransisco), and Los Angeles (Loyola Marymount University). PACT takes “Continental Philosophy” in its broadest sense, and everyone with an interest in continental thinking is invited to send in a submission and to participate. The conferences are always devoted to a particular theme which is determined at the previous meeting by the vote of all the conference participants.

The conference is planned to take place in person. Besides following the Covid regulations for indoor gatherings in effect at the time of the conference, for the safety and well-being of all, we require participants to be vaccinated and boosted, except for those with an exemption (which needs to be approved by USF).
