Prometheus is an undergraduate philosophy club and journal published by students at Johns Hopkins University.

The purpose of the journal is to promote the philosophic discourse of the highest standard by offering students an opportunity to engage in open discussion, participate in the production and publication of an academic journal, and establish a community of aspiring philosophers.

Prometheus holds various undergraduate events, including a discussion forum that meets every other Tuesday in the fall to discuss philosophical issues that are not addressed in the classroom.  In the spring, we host a seminar series in which we invite graduate students to deliver talks and lead discussions. Every April Prometheus hosts the Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Philosophy Conference, where undergraduates present their own work.

Prometheus also publishes an online undergraduate philosophy journal every year.  Each issue contains a selection of essays on various philosophic topics submitted by undergraduates from around the world.  We accept submissions every winter and publish the journal in the summer.

This conference is going to be held online.
