Marquette University 2022 Graduate Philosophy Conference 

The Philosophy of Care and Caring 


The Philosophy Graduate Student Association (PGSA) of Marquette University and Marquette’s chapter of Minorities And Philosophy (MAP) are pleased to invite submission of extended abstracts for their graduate philosophy conference to be held on April 8th, 2022.  

We invite abstracts from any field of philosophy (e.g. ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, phenomenology, feminist philosophy, philosophy of race, philosophy of disability, philosophy of mind, political philosophy, philosophy of law, bioethics, etc.) addressing various issues surrounding care and caring (e.g. What is care? How do we enact it? How does our understanding of care shape our understanding of life and death? Is care a normative value? What duties of care do we owe each other? What has the feminist ethics of care contributed to other philosophical fields? How has care and caring been understood throughout the history of philosophy? What does care mean in a pandemic?).  

***UPDATE*** We are shifting to a virtual conference due to the rising Covid cases in the Milwaukee area and to increase safety and accessibility. Please let us know if you have any specific access needs.

Please submit an extended abstract of 500 to 1200 words sent as a PDF to [email protected] by (***UPDATE: EXTENDED***) February 27th, 2022. Files should be anonymized. Please include the following in the body of your email: your name, paper title, email address, and institutional affiliation. Please format the subject heading of your email as follows: [your name] MUGPC 22 Submission.       

If your abstract is accepted, the paper will be due by March 27th to allow time for MU graduate students to prepare comments.  You will have 20 minutes for a presentation, followed by comments and Q&A. Keynote speaker TBD.
