About the Chicago Center for German Philosophy


The University of Chicago is blessed with a highly active community of faculty and graduate students whose research is either dedicated to or seriously engages with German philosophy. Members of this community are mainly, though not exclusively, based in the Philosophy Department, the Germanic Studies Department, and the Committee on Social Thought. In addition to this community at the University of Chicago, there is also a Chicago Area Consortium in German Philosophy in which faculty and students participate.

The mission of the Center for German Philosophy is to provide new opportunities for activity centered around the German philosophical tradition, as well as to serve as a unifying hub for existing academic research and collaboration. It helps fund and coordinate various events at the University of Chicago, including conferences, seminars, and graduate student workshops.

We have collected information on this webpage about the wide range of philosophical activities and events that take place at the University of Chicago, as well as the Chicago area more broadly. This includes conferences, graduate workshops, special lectures, and more. We have also provided information here about a variety of events in Germany and elsewhere in Europe that are co-sponsored by the CCGP — the majority of these take place during the summer months.
