Topic areas


Our ultimate aim is to showcase outstanding research by EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS. While there are a number of opportunities for graduate students and more senior philosophers to present and discuss their research, there are relatively few for researchers who have recently finished their PhDs and are building a career in philosophy. This series has been established as a step towards addressing this imbalance.

We invite submissions from researchers who received their PhD within the last 5 years. Papers must fall under the research remit of the Northern Institute of Philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology and the philosophies of logic, language, mathematics and mind. Only six papers will be selected and each paper will be given a faculty response. 

We invite papers suitable for a 40-minute presentation and of no longer than 4000 words. Papers should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 150 words and must be suitable for blind refereeing. Please indicate at the top of the first page of your paper which of the following categories it falls under: metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of mind. Please include a separate cover sheet including name, paper title, institution, month and year of PhD award and contact details. The deadline for receipt of submissions is 13th April 2012. We aim to notify authors of the decision regarding their paper by 22nd May 2012. Submissions must be in .doc or .pdf format and are to be submitted by e-mail to [email protected]

Meals (lunches and one social dinner) and accommodation will be provided for speakers.
