The DePauw University Philosophy Department is pleased to announce that our Young Philosophers Lecture Series will continue in 2023-2024.  The department will invite two young philosophers (persons who have received a Ph.D. in philosophy within the past six years) to give in-person campus talks, one during the fall and the other during the spring semester of the academic year. When on campus each young philosopher will give an undergraduate-friendly presentation of their paper. Young philosophers will also have the chance to workshop their research papers with other philosophers in a virtual setting. Participants in the workshop will be the other young philosophers, philosophers who referee submissions, and members of the DePauw philosophy department.

The deadline for submissions for the 2023-2024 lecture series is July 3, 2023. 


•Research Paper (max 4,000 words) - Word or PDF

•Abstract of Research Paper (max 250 words) - Word or PDF

•Make sure everything is suitable for anonymous review. Don't include any identifying information in your paper or your abstract.

•Deadline: July 3, 2023

•Submit via this form:

Direct all questions to incoming department chair Jeremy Anderson ([email protected]) and/or current chair Marcia McKelligan ([email protected]). 


Selected participants will have their lodging covered and their travel reimbursed up to $500 and will receive a small honorarium.



Your age is irrelevant to whether or not you are a young philosopher. By “young philosopher” we mean someone who has received their Ph.D. in philosophy within the last 6 years. We will also consider submissions from exceptional graduate students who reasonably expect to defend by the Spring or Summer at the end of the 2023-2024 academic year.
