The Mississippi Philosophical Association (MPA) is soliciting abstracts for presentations at its annual meeting, to be held February 9-10, (Saturday-Sunday), on the Mississippi State University campus in Starkville, MS. We seek participants whose work explores the importance of history—whether the history of philosophy, the history of a science or art form, or social and political history--to philosophical work.

While the MPA is a regional organization, we seek broad participation in this conference. Philosophers from all institutions and locations are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Submissions should include a title page with the title of the presentation, author’s name, institutional affiliation, email address, and postal address. A 500 word abstract should be prepared for blind review and sent as a second file (.doc or pdf only). Email all submissions or questions to Kristin Boyce (


Authors will be notified about submissions by DECEMBER 15th.

GRADUATE STUDENT PRIZE: There will be cash prizes of $200 (first) and $100 (second) for the best graduate student presentations. If you are a graduate student and want to be eligible for the prize, please note your graduate student status on the title page of your submission.
