Topic areas


Binghamton University’s philosophy graduate program invites submissions for its 2021 graduate student conference. This year's conference will be held online.

Our keynote speaker will be Elizabeth Barnes of the University of Virginia.

The conference theme broadly focuses on our program’s specialization in social, political, ethical and legal (SPEL) philosophy. We hope to accept a range of papers that ask important questions and start meaningful dialogues on SPEL topics.

Acceptable subgenres of SPEL themes include, but are not limited to the following:

·         Applied social and political philosophy

·         Applied ethics

·         Normative ethics

·         Metaethics

·         Critical theory

·         Feminist philosophy

·         Philosophy of race

·         Social epistemology

·         Philosophy of education

·         Theories of risk

Submissions in these areas from any philosophical tradition are welcome.

Submissions must include an anonymized full paper of about 3000 words, with a view for a 20-minute presentation followed by 10 to 20 minutes of Q&A.

In your submission email please include:

·         Name

·         University affiliation

·         Current level of graduate studies

·         SPEL themes relevant to your paper

Each submission will be anonymously reviewed by conference committee members. Email all submissions to [email protected] no later than August 31, 2022.
