Topic areas


The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Graduate Philosophical Union, in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and The Center for Applied Ethics, is proud to issue a call for papers for the inaugural meeting of the Southeast Conference of Applied Philosophy. The topic of this gathering will be “Philosophy in Urgent Times.” We invite submissions from any related philosophical discipline as well as relevant theoretical contributions from other disciplines. Submissions, in keeping with the topic, should speak to the role and application of philosophy in our modern lived context and contend specifically with an urgent social/political issue of our day and age. Appropriate topic areas might include, in no particular order: climate change, activism, critical race theory, oppression studies, critical disability theory, queer theory, decolonial/coloniality studies, and any other related work.

Papers should be between 2500-3500 words, and include a 250-500 word abstract. The submission should be prepared for anonymous review with all author information (title, name, institution, graduate/undergraduate, institution email, phone number) on a separate title page. The conference will consist of 50 minute sessions, with the expectation of 35 minutes for presentations and 15 minutes opened up for questions.
