Call for Papers: Eastern Michigan University’s Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy

Call for Papers
Eastern Michigan University’s 6
th Annual Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy
March 5
th and 6th, 2016

The Eastern Michigan University Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy is now accepting papers for its conference to be held at EMU on Saturday and Sunday, March 5th and 6th, 2016.  Papers selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minute presentation times, followed by formal comments and Q & A.  All papers in philosophy, broadly construed, will be considered for the conference; since this is an undergraduate conference, no papers by professionals, graduate students, or others holding an advanced degree (in philosophy) will be considered.
Papers submitted for the conference should be 8-12 pages in length and include an abstract approximately 250 words in length.  
 
The deadline for submission is January 8, 2016, and only completed papers accompanied by an abstract will be reviewed.  We expect to announce the papers selected for presentation before the end of January.
We will also be using a formal commenter system; so, even if your paper is not selected for presentation, you may be considered for such a role.  Please let us know, along with your paper submission, if you are willing to comment.  This also means that all selected papers will receive formal feedback at the conference.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Michelle Maiese, of Emmanuel College in Boston

Faculty Mentors:  We have enjoyed having faculty attend in a purely support role.  We strongly encourage students to bring faculty mentors to the conference.  The dialog among professors, discussion of pedagogy, and expansion of mentoring opportunities for students, are among the desirable benefits of this conference.

Papers, abstracts, and questions should be submitted electronically to emuucip@gmail.com

Faculty Supervisor:  Dr. W. John Koolage, wkoolage@emich.edu
 
Publication Opportunity:  The top (3 to 5) papers submitted will also be published in the upcoming edition of our undergraduate philosophy journal!  www.emich.edu/historyphilosophy/journals.php
 
*Papers submitted and/or presented at other conferences will be given equal consideration in our review process.
