Call for Abstracts
In a joint effort of the Departments of Political Economy, Philosophy and Law at King's College London, we would like to invite all graduate students and early career researchers interested in legal, moral and political philosophy to participate in the first Graduate Conference in Politics, Philosophy & Law, sponsored by the Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Poltics, Philosophy & Law with the financial support of the Mind Association. The conference will take place on the first weekend of December 2021, and we hope to host it in person on the Strand Campus of King's College London.
The conference aims to give graduate students and early career researchers the opportunity to discuss work in progress in a collaborative, productive and stimulating environment. Participants will have the chance to receive feedback from discussants, faculty members, other presenters and attendees. We welcome contributions on any topic in legal, moral and political philosophy, and we particularly encourage participation from students and researchers from historically under-represented backgrounds.
We welcome anonymised abstracts of around 700 words by Sunday 5th September 2021.
To apply, please send an anonymised abstract of around 700 words by Sunday 5th September to the form at the link below. You will be asked if you would like to be a respondent to the paper of another participant, as well as if you would prefer to give a poster presentation (A2 in size) rather than an oral presentation. We will notify successful applicants by Sunday 26th September. Selected participants will be asked to provide a full paper of around 5,000 words by Sunday 7th November. The conference will take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December 2021.
