Call for Papers:

Have you been struggling to write for the past year? You’re not the only one. The COVID-19 pandemic, social and political turmoil, the abortive sedition of January 6th, and the prospect of entering an uncertain job market are weighing on every philosophy graduate student. But one thing that philosophers know is that the things that fill your head are the things you can turn into good work, important work. 

Following this theme, BGSU’s annual Graduate Student Workshop centers on the pandemic and all the social and political problems that have come along with it. We’re offering graduate students a space to present drafts for papers about the world during, and after, Covid and work together to turn them into the solid work we’re all capable of. 

Papers should be about topics related to the pandemic, which gives you a lot to work with! How has political polarization shaped our response to the pandemic? What can we do about a lack of trust in medicine? How and why do rumors and conspiracy theories spread? These are just a few of the topics on the table. What will you bring to us? Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity—submit your abstract before it’s too late!
