Pittsburgh Area Kant Conference

Call for Papers

Topic: Kant and Contemporary Philosophical Issues

Keynote Speaker: Andrew Chignell (Princeton University)

Submission Deadline: September 18, 2021

Conference Date: November 20, 2021

The purpose of the Pittsburgh Area Kant Conference is to bring together graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and early career academics for a professional conference devoted to the study of Immanuel Kant’s work. PAKC is an excellent opportunity for emerging scholars to collaborate and receive feedback on their research.

Submissions must be suitable for a 30-45 minute presentation with Q&A (3,000-5,000 words). All papers relevant to the broadly construed topic Kant and Contemporary Philosophical Issues will be considered. A successful paper will be situated within the context of contemporary developments in the Anglo-American and Continental philosophical traditions. We encourage reflections on the significance of Kant's ideas for addressing persistent issues in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, or aesthetics. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, conference sessions will be held over Zoom. If fortuitous circumstances occur where we are able to hold sessions in person, PAKC organizers will let you know.
