Everyone is invited to submit an abstract no longer than 300 words and addressing topics discussed at the conference. Co-authored abstracts are admitted for submission too. The proposal must be sent with a short academic biographical note (50-150 words) that lists any degrees and the institutions where they were obtained, as well as your current affiliation.
All submissions should be sent to our mail [email protected] by March 31, 2023, in order to be considered. We anticipate being able to offer 2–3 slots to submitted presentations and priority will be given to early-career researchers (current graduate students and those within 5 years post-PhD). Women philosophers and philosophers from other under-represented groups are warmly encouraged to apply. The presentations will last no more than 45 minutes. Decisions will be communicated by April 15, 2023.
