Call For Abstracts - All Winners Funded!

Abstracts on any topic related to the "Epistemology of Justice" are welcome.

Overview: SJP Workshops aim to bring cutting edge thinking to both classical and contemporary topics, with an eye to encouraging bold new directions in philosophical thought. Each event will combine keynotes by world famous scholars with competitively selected work. The main proceedings will be published together each year in the final issue of the corresponding volume of the journal. Participants will spend a day and two nights in Memphis, with all room and board fully covered. Additional funding may be available.

Instructions for main program: Abstracts should nclude a title and be between 750-1000 words. They must be prepared for anonymous review with an eye to avoiding unnecessary jargon. Bibliographic material may be placed at the end and does not count toward the word count. A separate document with the author’s name, affiliation, contact information,and paper title should be included with every submission.

Email both documents (either as doc. or pdf. files) to the Managing Editor, Ms. Cathy Wilhelm, at The subject line of thisemail should read, “2019 SJP Workshop Submission.”

Instructions for graduate student presentations: Follow the sameinstructions as above, but change subject line of email to read, “2019 SJP Workshop Graduate Submission.” Master and Doctoral studentswho are currently enrolled in a philosophy graduate program are welcome to apply. Winners will be given 10 minute slots to present 5-minute lighting presentations and field 5 minutes of Q&A.

Note 1: Submission indicates your intention to include final versions of papers in the published proceedings; but acceptance does not guarantee publication. Final work must pass external review. Graduate presentations will not be published. Participants must arrive Thursday before the opening keynote at 6PM. They may depart at their leisure after the concluding banquet Friday evening.

Note 2: The editorial team is not responsible for reviewing abstracts for proper preparation. Submissions which are not properly anonymized or formatted may be rejected without notice.
