The Annual Southwest Graduate Philosophy Conference

Hosted by the Graduate Philosophical Society at Arizona State University

Date TBD: The Conference will take place on a Friday and Saturday in either February or March 2021. It is not on February 28th.

(Dr. Jenkins is working out her precise availability in the Spring; we will update the determined weekend of the conference very soon!)

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be conducting the conference this year through Zoom, which will allow all participants to attend remotely. 

We're pleased to have as keynote Dr. Katharine Jenkins (University of Glasgow). The keynote talk will potentially be focused around the topic of Gender and Ontic Injustice. 

We welcome papers in all areas of philosophy, although special consideration will be given to papers from the following areas: social philosophy, feminist philosophy, critical philosophy of race, philosophy of sex and sexuality, and social epistemology. Related paper subjects might include: topics in social categories, social ontology, and ontology of gender or race.    

Each presenter will be given 30 minutes for their presentation and 15 minutes for Q&A, so please keep in mind a word limit of 3000-3500 words. 

Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review. Please include a separate cover page with the following information: 

  • Name

  • Institution

  • Title of paper 

  • Abstract (250 words or fewer) 

  • Contact information (email and phone number)

  • Indicate whether you would like to be a respondent for a paper and include relevant AOS/AOC. A respondent prepares at least three questions to start the presenter’s Q&A session.

Please include the paper of 3000-3500 words with your submission, with no name on it for anonymous review.
