Call for Papers
Papers must have philosophical content, but there are no specific restrictions on subject matter within the arena of philosophical discussion itself. However, we especially encourage papers on Asian Philosophy, Latinx Philosophy, Africana Philosophy, and philosophy pertaining to other marginalized groups.
We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a small grant from the American Philosophical Association to offer a $500 award for the student with the best paper and $100 stipends for each presenter and commentator. The student with the best paper will also be featured as the student keynote speaker on the final day of the conference. We have extended the conference to allow for more presentations.
Electronic submissions (.doc or pdf) are required and should be sent as an attachment to Liz Goodnick at email@example.com. Submissions should include both the paper and an abstract of 100-200 words. Papers should be approximately 2500 words (8-10 pages) and prepared for anonymous review.
Please include the following in the body of the email: 1. The paper's title 2. Word count 3. Author's name 4. Institutional affiliation (if any) 5. Email address 6. Telephone number 7. Will you need a smart classroom to present your paper?
Papers that do not include the above will not be considered. No more than one paper by the same author will be considered.
Submission deadline is Friday, February 17, 2017.
Papers will be reviewed by the conference planning committee. Notification of acceptance will be made via email by March 17, 2017. Submissions whose authors cannot be contacted through email will be rejected.
Each paper will have a commentator. Those interested in providing brief comments of approximately 5-7 minutes should email Liz Goodnick at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 17, 2017, stating your availability and areas of interest. Please indicate whether you would like to be a commentator should your paper not be accepted.
