Call for Abstracts
Philosophy in the Wild (PhilWild) invites abstract submissions for presentations at our second annual conference, the theme of which is environmental philosophy, very broadly construed.* We are especially interested in papers dealing with issues surrounding environment and race. This event is an outdoor, technology-free event.
From June 17th to 19th, 2022, presenters will camp at Ridley Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. Non-presenting participants are invited to attend the presentations. Activities will include (though will not be limited to) a keynote presentation, participant presentations, and hiking (optional). No prior camping experience is necessary; Philosophy in the Wild can work with presenters to help make gear arrangements.
Selected papers will be eligible for publication in a special issue of the Public Philosophy Journal in collaboration with PhilWild. For more information about the Public Philosophy Journal, see: https://publicphilosophyjournal.org.
