The 2024 Marquette University Graduate Philosophy Conference will take place, in a hybrid in-person/online structure, on Saturday, April 6th, 2024. The conference will be organized by the Philosophy Graduate Student Association (PGSA), and hosted at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

The goal of the conference is to foster a supportive and productive philosophical community, and to facilitate rigorous philosophical thought on pressing issues which require nuanced and careful analysis. Pursuant to this goal, and given the multitude of resistance movements addressing various urgent issues at this time, the theme of this edition of the conference will be “The Ethics of (Un)Civil Protest.”

Some examples of thematic topics might include, but are not limited to papers on:

  • Environmental Protest

  • The Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

  • Historical Protest Movements

  • Civil Rights Movements

  • The Black Lives Matter Movement

  • Labor Movements

  • Forms of Resistance

  • Responses to Protest

  • Praxis and Methodology

Graduate students interested in presenting at this conference are invited to submit 500-750 word abstracts. Accepted submissions should be prepared for 20 minute presentations and a response to a commentator on the day of the conference. Because the conference will utilize a commentator system to cultivate discussion, authors will be asked to submit their papers to commentators no later than March 22nd, 2024, two weeks before the conference date. 

Submitted materials are to be anonymized for blind review and submitted through [this google form]:

Information needed includes your name, email address, paper title, institutional affiliation (if applicable), and whether or not you are interested in commentating on other’s papers.

The deadline for submissions is Jan 16th, 2024.

 Acceptance decisions will be made and communicated by Feb 9th, 2024.
