The Philosophy Graduate Student Association has sponsored the Texas Tech University Philosophy Graduate Student Conference every spring semester for the past 12 years. Students from around the globe have presented their work at our conference, which has covered many topics including aesthetics, philosophy of science, metaethics, and the history of philosophy. In addition, we also invite a keynote speaker to the conference, an esteemed philosopher who is doing important work in the area of specialization covered by the conference.

Our 13th Annual Conference in Spring 2018 will be on the subject of the Philosophy of Language, broadly construed! And we are very proud to host Dr. Robert Stalnaker of MIT, who will be delivering our keynote address!

Call for Papers:

Submissions from current graduate students in any area of philosophy of language are welcome. Papers should be between 3,000 – 3,500 words in length. A 150-word abstract should precede the paper.

All papers should be prepared for blind review. Include with each submission a separate document containing the author’s name, institution, e-mail address, and paper title. Submissions may be in .PDF, .docx or .doc format. 

All submissions should be sent to Patrick Brooks (patrick.brooks@ttu.edu) with subject heading, “TTU Conference Submission”.

PAPERS MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, JANUARY 11th 2018! Students who have submitted a paper shall receive a notification of acceptance by Friday, February 8th, 2018.

A small stipend may be awarded to presenters to reduce the cost of travel.
