Eastern Michigan University’s 11th Annual Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy

March 13th and 14th, 2021

The Eastern Michigan University Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy is now accepting papers for its virtual conference to be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 13th and 14th, 2021. Papers selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minute presentation times, followed by formal comments and Q&A. All papers in philosophy, broadly construed, will be considered for the conference; since this is an undergraduate conference, no papers by professionals, graduate students, or others holding an advanced degree (in philosophy) will be considered.

Papers submitted for the conference should be 8-12pages (2200-3600words) in length and include an abstract, approximately 250 words in length.

The deadline for submission is Thursday, January 15th, 2021, and only completed papers accompanied by an abstract will be reviewed. We expect to announce the papers selected for presentation by early to mid-February.

We will also be using a formal commenter system; so, even if your paper is not selected for presentation, you may be considered for such a role. Please let us know, along with your paper submission, if you are willing to comment. This also means that all selected papers will receive formal feedback at the conference.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Carol Hay of University of Massachusetts Lowell.

FacultyMentors: We strongly encourage students to invite faculty mentors to the conference. The dialog among professors, discussion of pedagogy, and expansion of mentoring opportunities for students, are among the desirable benefits of this conference. Additionally, faculty have played an important role in the success of the conference.

Submit abstracts electronically to this Google Form. Papers should be submitted following the instructions on the Google form.

PublicationOpportunity: The top (3to5) papers submitted will also be published in the upcoming edition of our undergraduate philosophy journal, ActaCogitata!
