IPN Lectures

Lectures and seminars in academic philosophy in India are  usually either introductions to specific topics or presentations of research carried out. There are few forums that discuss important questions about the 'doing' of philosophy itself, such as: How do we teach philosophy? How do we conceptualise and execute philosophy projects? How do we do research, write and publish our work? IPN Lectures aim to initiate conversation and deliberation on these dimensions of philosophy.

The first set of IPN Lectures focuses on the theme of writing and publishing in philosophy. These lectures would be aimed at addressing some common questions that philosophy researchers are likely to have, such as:

  • How do I prepare an article for submission to a peer-reviewed journal, and what can I expect from the peer-review process? 

  • Which academic journal should I publish in?

  • I have submitted/defended my thesis. How do I convert my thesis into a book?

  • There is an interesting and fertile idea that deserves discussion from various stakeholders in the debate. How do I propose and work on an edited volume on this topic?

  • I have an idea for a book. How do I build a book proposal, and approach publishers?

  • How do I write non-academic articles for the public, and where can I publish them?


Any queries regarding the lecture series on writing and publishing can be e-mailed to Sushruth Ravish ( and Siddharth S ( If you would like to take the lead on organising lectures on a particular theme, please send an email to
