Writing Sample Workshop – Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

About the Workshop

The Graduate Philosophical Association at the University of Oklahoma is inviting students from several nearby philosophy departments to participate in a Writing Sample Workshop. This workshop is designed specifically for graduate students and advanced undergraduate students who are applying to MA or PhD programs in Philosophy this year to receive feedback on their writing samples in a positive and welcoming environment.

Keynote

Instead of a traditional keynote speaker, we will host a Faculty Panel on “Writing Graduate Level Philosophy.” Several faculty members of the Philosophy Department at the University of Oklahoma will lead an informal discussion and Q&A session on strategies to improve writing that are tailored for philosophy graduate students.

Submission Guidelines

To be considered for acceptance to the Writing Sample Workshop, please submit a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) or Adobe PDF (.pdf) document to  ougraduateconference@gmail.com. In your submission, include the following information:

·  Name

·  Contact information (preferred email address)

·  Current school and program

·  Philosophical areas of interest

·  Considering applying to the PhD Program at OU?

·  Abstract of project (between 100-500 words)

The abstracts will be anonymized for our selection procedures. Priority will be given to projects that the graduate philosophical community at the University of Oklahoma is especially well-equipped to provide useful feedback about - for example projects in epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of art, and history of ancient Greek and ancient Chinese philosophy. Priority will also be given to students who are strongly considering applying to the PhD program in Philosophy at the University of Oklahoma.

The submission deadline is October 13th, 2018. If you have any questions, please email ougraduateconference@gmail.com or one of our Workshop Coordinators: Cheryl Frazier (cherylfrazier@ou.edu) and Jeremy Fried (jfried@ou.edu).
