Topic areas


We believe that dialogue among people of diverse backgrounds and interests is the most effective means to refining one’s ideas, and we want undergraduate students to have the opportunity to engage with one another towards this end. Papers on any topic of philosophy are welcome. If accepted to present at the MUPC, papers must be tailored to fit a 20-minute presentation window. After the presentation, there will be a 20-minute question and answer session. The purpose of this format is to encourage live dialogue between undergraduates with different backgrounds and training in the philosophical discipline. We encourage traditional philosophical treatments of these topics as well as papers using an interdisciplinary approach.

Only currently enrolled undergraduates are eligible to submit their academic work for consideration and inclusion in the MUPC. No work from graduate students will be considered, even if the work was written during their undergraduate career. This policy ensures that undergraduate students with comparable levels of training are given the opportunity to help support and educate one another in their areas of interest.

The annual Michigan Undergraduate Philosophy Conference is organized exclusively by students affiliated with the University of Michigan-Flint Philosophy department, with the guidance of the Center for Cognition and Neuroethics.
