The second Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Philosophy Conference will be hosted by Prometheus, the International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal at Johns Hopkins University, and will take place on April 12, 2014. Undergraduates from all institutions are welcome to submit a paper on any topic of their choosing. Papers should be no more than 3000 words, double-spaced, and should include a 100-200 word abstract. Identifying information (name, school, phone number, and email address) should only be found on a cover page. The cover page should be submitted as a separate document. Please submit these materials to [email protected] (the previously listed email address, [email protected], was incorrect) with "Conference Submission" in the subject line.

Participants will give presentations on their papers (details to come later).

The best paper will be considered for publication in Prometheus, the Johns Hopkins Undergraduate Philosophy Journal.  All other papers accepted to the conference will be published online.  

The conference will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. Nancy Sherman of Georgetown University, whose recent research has focused on military ethics, emotions, and the history of moral philosophy.  Following, presenters are invited to attend an on-campus dinner hosted by the Department of Philosophy for undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty members in the philosophy department.

We regret that we will be unable to reimburse attendants for travel costs.

Please send any questions about the conference to [email protected] and [email protected]
