The 2020 West Coast Plato Workshop will be dedicated to studies of Plato’s Lysis. It will take place May 22-24, 2019, at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

Submissions should consist in two separate pages: (i) the title of the paper, name(s), academic rank(s), affiliation(s), and email contact(s) of author(s); (ii) title and 500-word abstract prepared for blind review. Submissions should be double-spaced and 12-pitch, in MSWord, PDF, or RTF formats only.

Refereeing for submissions will be blind and will be done by past and present hosts of the WCPW. Final selection will attempt to achieve a good balance of participants (senior and junior faculty as well as graduate students).

We are also soliciting volunteers for those willing to serve as commentators and session chairs.


Please send paper proposals and/or volunteer as a commentator or chair to: ndsmith@lclark.edu
