Call for Proposals

Submissions: Faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and independent scholars from anywhere in the world are invited to submit abstracts for the 2024 joint meeting of the South Carolina Society for Philosophy (SCSP) and the North Carolina Philosophical Society (NCPS). Proposals or panels on any topic of philosophical interest are welcome. Undergraduate students should plan to submit their full papers of approximately 3000 words; others may submit abstracts of approximately 500 words. All submissions for the SCSP should be anonymized and emailed to the SCSP leadership ([email protected]) by January 1st, 2024, and should include a title and a few possible categories into which the paper could fit on the program if accepted. In the body of your email, please indicate your name, institutional affiliation (if any), status (e.g., faculty, graduate student, etc.), contact information, and whether you wish your paper to be considered for a Society prize (see below).

Location: The joint meeting will be hosted by the North Carolina Philosophical Society at Davidson College in Davidson, NC. Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT) is located 25 minutes southwest of Davidson in Charlotte. The sixth busiest airport in the county, CLT airport is served by fifteen carriers, and is the second-largest hub for American Airlines. Additional information about lodging options near the conference venue will be communicated upon acceptance of your proposal.

Underrepresented Voices in Philosophy: The Society particularly encourages submissions from participants whose work or presence in the profession centers on historically underrepresented questions, themes, issues, figures, or methods of inquiry.

Prizes: Contingent on the number and quality of submissions, the SCSP will award cash prizes to the best essays from a non-tenured faculty member at a SC institution, a graduate student (from any institution), and an undergraduate student at a SC institution. Authors wishing to be considered for one of these prizes should indicate this in their initial abstract (as above). Faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students wishing to be considered for a prize should plan to submit an anonymized version of their full paper of approximately 3000 words to SCSP leadership ([email protected]) by February 1st, 2024.
