The SPSGH meets annually in association with The Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP). These meetings are in October or November of each year. We also meet every year in association with the American Philosophical Association (APA) in the spring of the following year. Programs for both meetings usually consists of a panel of 4 to 5 presenters on a theme decided in advance of the meetings. Specific information is available from the Vice-Presidents of each division—Erik Vogt and André Mineau, respectively.
