Details

The Northwest Student Philosophy Conference (NWSPC) is an annual conference organized by undergraduate students at Western Washington University and aims to showcase the philosophical research of undergraduate, graduate and professional philosophers. Our keynote speaker will be Thomas M. Crisp from Biola University. He will be lecturing on immigrant and refugee ethics, arguing that affluent nations have greater obligations toward immigrants and refugees than is typically recognized. Last year our keynote speaker was Heather Battaly. In the past several years, we have been privileged to host Alex Guerrero, Meghan Sullivan, Carrie Jenkins, Jonathan Ichikawa, Kris McDaniel, Ben Bradley, Shieva Kleinschmidt, Laurie Paul, Kit Fine, Michael Rea, Dean Zimmerman, and Jonathan Schaffer as keynote and guest speakers

  This year, our conference will be taking place from May 26-28. Both graduate and undergraduate students are invited to submit papers. Papers can be on any philosophical topic, and should be at least 2,000 words in length, but preferably no longer than 15,000. Entrance is fairly competitive, as we have only 6-8 open slots for student presentations, but this should not discourage interested applicants. The submission deadline is March 17th.

HOW TO SUBMIT PAPERS:

•Prepare your paper for blind review

•Provide an abstract around 200 words between the title and main text of the paper

•Send a copy as an attachment (either as word document or pdf) to Ryan.Wasserman@wwu.edu

•Provide relevant contact information (Name / Institution / Email / Phone) in any emails sent
