CFP: Falsafa: Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy

Submission deadline: March 31, 2024

Topic areas


We are accepting submissions by undergraduate students for the 6th issue of Falsafa, the Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy at UC Irvine. Our goal is to invite undergraduates to write about marginalized or underrepresented topics of philosophy. This journal invites students to engage with topics that are lacking in philosophy curricula. We invite papers on any topic, debate, or figure in philosophical traditions that are under-represented or marginalized in the discipline

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of traditions that we welcome submissions in:

  • Africana Philosophy

  • Islamic Philosophy

  • Chinese Philosophy

  • Indian Philosophy

  • Philosophy of Race and Gender

  • Feminist and Marxist philosophy

  • Philosophy of Sexuality

  • Indigenous Philosophy

We also encourage submissions that compare the work of thinkers from aforementioned philosophical traditions with those commonly studied in the discipline (such as Plato, Descartes, Wittgenstein, and others)

Additionally, we will be holding a conference in Spring 2024, on the 26th of April, hosted by the Philosophy Club at UC Irvine.

*For reference, take a look at the past/inaugural issues of Falsafa:
