Topic areas


The North American Nietzsche Society will hold its fifth international conference in Albuquerque on November 7-9, 2024 at The University of New Mexico. The conference will feature two keynote speakers, Andrew Huddleston (The University of Warwick) and Allison Merrick (California State University, San Marcos), and around six papers selected on the basis of abstract submissions. Sessions will be 90 minutes, with approximately 40 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion. The conference program may also include invited panels. In addition, this year’s conference will include a junior scholar workshop featuring work from junior scholars and commentaries on that work from senior scholars.

Submission of abstracts:

Detailed abstracts on any aspect of Nietzsche’s philosophy should be prepared for blind review and sent by February 15, 2024.

Send 750-1,200 word abstracts as a PDF file to: nietzschesociety2024 [at] In the body of your email, include your (i) paper title, (ii) name, (iii) institutional affiliation, and (iv) contact information. The abstract itself should contain no identifying information, including in the file’s meta-data.

If you would like your work considered for inclusion in the junior scholar workshop, please indicate that in the body of your email. To be eligible for the junior scholar workshop, you must be a graduate student or have received your PhD in the last five years (no earlier than October 2019). You may not be tenured.

The program committee will evaluate submissions and prepare a program of roughly six presentations. The initial review of abstracts will be blind, although at the final stage the program committee may take into consideration the overall diversity of the program and its presenters. Program decisions will be announced by April 2024. Papers presented on the main program will presumptively be published in a special issue of The Journal of Nietzsche Studies.

Graduate student prize: We will reserve one spot for the best abstract submitted by a graduate student (though additional graduate student abstracts may be chosen via blind review). We will cover all travel expenses for the winner of this prize. If you wish to be considered for this prize, please indicate that you are a graduate student in the body of your email.

Panel presentations: There may be space on the program for one or two panel sessions of approximately 90 minutes, featuring multiple speakers discussing some aspect of Nietzsche’s philosophical thought. We welcome proposals for panels, including but not limited to author-meets-critics sessions, sets of brief papers on a common theme, and structured roundtable discussions on a particular topic. When submitting a panel proposal, please include a brief description of the topic and a list of participants. Indicate whether these participants are confirmed or merely suggested. The program committee may also propose panels or suggest amendments to proposed panels in consultation with the proposer. Notification about conference panels will also likely be in April 2024. 

Questions can be directed to the chair of the program committee, Kaitlyn Creasy (California State University, San Bernardino) at [email protected].
