The deadline has been extended to February 1st. Now we do accept abstract submissions (successful applicants must provide their completed essays no later than the first of April)

Call for papers  
We invite quality graduate and undergraduate papers that address the themes of the conference: the problem of the under-representation of groups in philosophy or the implications of status of minorities in the profession more broadly. Papers in both “analytic” and “continental” traditions are welcome. Papers in French are welcome.

Submission Guidelines  
Abstracts should be between 300 and 600 words, prepared for blind review in .DOC or .PDF format. Successful applicants must provide their completed essays no later than the first of April, 2012. (NB: Although submission of abstracts sufficient at this point, preference will be given to those who submit their completed paper alongside the abstract by the first of February deadline).

Student presentations will not exceed twenty (20) minutes in length, followed by a question and answer period. Therefore, the completed papers should not (grossly) exceed 3,500 words (not including footnotes).

In a separate cover letter, the authors must include their name, affiliation, e-mail address and the title of their submission. 

The same author(s) may submit up to two abstracts for consideration. Papers that contain previously published materials should be identified as such. 

Send submissions & questions:   [email protected]

Submission Deadline:  January 22nd  February 1st, 2012

Applicants will be contacted with final decisions by February 25, 2012.
