Last year’s annual meeting of the Bertrand Russell Society was held June 24-26 2016 at St. John Fisher College in Rochester NY. Rick Lewis, editor of Philosophy Now, was the keynote speaker.

This year’s meeting will be June 2-4 at Central Connecticut State University. To attend, fill out this registration form and send it in. Here are the meeting’s program and talk abstracts.

Students – the Russell Society invites papers for its annual Student Essay Prize competition for the best new paper on Russell by an undergraduate or graduate student. Details are here.

The winners of last year’s (2016) BRS Book Award are Donovan Wishon and Bernard Linsky for Knowledge, Acquaintance, and Logic: New Essays on Russell’s Problems of Philosophy.

Other past BRS Book Award winners are Gülberk Koç Maclean for Bertrand Russell’s Bundle Theory of Particulars, John Ongley and Rosalind Carey for Russell: A Guide for the Perplexed, and Jolen Galaugher for Russell’s Philosophy of Logical Analysis.

Be sure to visit the online Russell Society Library, where you will find an extensive collection of works by Russell available for online viewing (and many videos of Russell in the members area). New at the Society Library is a complete bibliography of Russell's writings.

Finally, the Russell Society’s Bulletin is also online, as are McMaster University’s Russell Journal, and past issues of the BRS Quarterly.
