Call for Papers

We invite papers on any philosophical topic in English or Spanish for the annual conference of the New Mexico – Texas Philosophical Society. Important COVID notice: we intend to host this year’s conference as a hybrid conference. We hope to be able to have a small gathering (less than 30 people) at Baylor University in Waco, TX. However, we will be simultaneously streaming virtual presentations and we are prepared to move the event entirely online, depending on circumstances. Virtual presentations are welcome.

Papers ought not exceed 3,000 words (excluding footnotes and references) and must be able to be presented within 25 minutes. Complete papers are required; abstracts will not be accepted. There will be commentaries on each paper, and authors of accepted papers are invited to comment on other papers. Papers that have been previously published (or are forthcoming for publication) are not eligible for submission. Each paper should be prepared for anonymous review and submitted electronically to the following website by March 1, 2021:
