2020 Graduate Student Philosophy Conference at Binghamton University Nov 7-8, 2020

Binghamton University’s philosophy graduate program invites submissions for its 2020 graduate student conference. Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic this conference will be completely virtual over Zoom, and we have added an extra day to our conference schedule to fight screen fatigue for all participants.

The conference theme broadly focuses on our program’s specialization in Social, Political Ethical and Legal (SPEL) philosophy. We hope to host a diversity of graduate research that asks important questions and starts meaningful dialogues on SPEL topics.

Giving the keynote address will be Kate Manne of Cornell University, author of Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny and the forthcoming Entitled: How White Male Privilege Hurts Women.

Acceptable subgenres of SPEL themes include, but are not limited to:

·         Applied social and political philosophy

·         Applied ethics

·         Normative ethics

·         Metaethics

·         Critical theory

·         Feminist philosophy

·         Philosophy of race

·         Social epistemology

·         Philosophy of education

·         Theories of risk

Submissions in these areas from any philosophical tradition are welcome.

Submissions must include an anonymized full paper of about 3000 words, with a view for a 20-minute presentation followed by 10-20-minute Q&A.

In your submitting email please include:

·         Name

·         University affiliation

·         Current level of graduate studies

·          SPEL themes your paper fits into.

Each submission will be anonymously reviewed by conference committee members. Email all submissions to [email protected] no later than August 31, 2020.
