The Southeast Association for the Continental Tradition (SEACT) aims to build community among Continental philosophers in the southeastern United States. The location of our annual meeting alternates among member institutions. Each meeting will be devoted to a particular theme agreed upon in advance by our members.

By the “Continental tradition,” we aim to be as inclusive as possible and encourage anyone with an interest in Continental thought to submit an abstract for consideration. We also encourage papers related to the practice of teaching within the Continental tradition and across the history of philosophy. Lastly, we invite advanced undergraduates to submit for a special session devoted to their work. Undergraduates should include a letter of recommendation from a faculty member.

Our first annual meeting will be hosted by Saint Leo University on February 28-29, 2020 in Tampa, FL. As a way of building our new community, we will suggest optional excursions in the Tampa Bay area as part of our time together. We believe that philosophical community extends beyond the confines of the traditional conference format.
