Call for Papers: Northwest Student Philosophy Conference

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 15TH NORTHWEST STUDENT PHILOSOPHY CONFERENCE

The Northwest Student Philosophy Conference (NWSPC) is organized by undergraduate students and aims to showcase the philosophical research of undergraduate, graduate and professional philosophers.  In the last several years, we have been privileged to host Alex Guerrero (2014), Meghan Sullivan (2013), Carrie Jenkins and Jonathan Ichikawa (2012) Kris McDaniel (2011), Ben Bradley, Shieva Kleinschmidt, and Laurie Paul (2010), Kit Fine (2009), Michael Rea (2009), Dean Zimmerman (2008) and Jonathan Schaffer (2007) as keynote and guest speakers. This year’s keynote speaker will be Heather Battaly.

This year, our conference takes place Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29. All students – undergraduate or graduate – are invited to submit papers. Entrance is fairly competitive as we have only 6-8 open slots for student presentations, but this should not discourage interested applicants. Papers can be on any philosophical topic, and should be at least 2,000 words in length, but preferably no longer than 15,000. The submission deadline is March 12.

HOW TO SUBMIT PAPERS:

  1. Prepare the paper for blind review
  2. Provide an abstract (up to 200 words) between the title and main text of the paper
  3. Send an e-copy as an attachment (either as word document or pdf) to Ryan.Wasserman@wwu.edu
  4. In the email to which the paper is attached, provide relevant contact information: Name / Institution / Email / Phone
