The Second Annual Lehigh University Conference in Philosophy

Philosophy Unbound

Thursday October 23—Friday 24, 2014

Keynote speaker: Louise Antony, University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Lehigh University Philosophy Department invites submissions for our Second Annual Conference in Philosophy.  We are interested in submissions that challenge, redraw, or even erase traditional divisions either within philosophy or between philosophy and other disciplines.

Submissions might address connections/divisions between philosophy and disciplines such as art history, literary studies, anthropology, history, various sciences, disability studies, gender studies, economics, race theory; or philosophy's complacent periodizations into, for example, pre-Socratic, ancient, modern, contemporary; or its ready-made dichotomies, such as materialism/idealism, dualism/monism, naturalism/non-naturalism, continental/analytic, empiricism/rationalism, theory/practice.

Submission deadline:

May 15, 2014

Electronic submission of detailed abstracts (750-1000 words) should be in Word or pdf

format.  Reading time for presented papers is 30 minutes.

Send abstracts as attachments to [email protected]> with “LU conference submission” as the subject. Please include in body of e-mail your name, paper title, institutional affiliation, and contact information.
