The students at Western Washington University have announced a call for papers for their Northwest Student Philosophy Conference (NWSPC). Students whose work is accepted to present at a conference can apply for a travel grant from the university. More details about student travel awards are on the university website. Here is information from them about the event:
The Northwest Student Philosophy Conference (NWSPC) is organized by undergraduate students and aims to showcase the philosophical research of undergraduate, graduate, and professional philosophers. This year, our conference takes place on Memorial Day weekend, May 26-27. We are pleased to announce that Georgi Gardiner from the St. John’s College, Oxford University, will be delivering the keynote address. All students – undergraduate, masters, 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, preferably no longer than 6,000 words. Submission deadline is March 31.
HOW TO SUBMIT PAPERS:
- Prepare the paper for blind review
- Provide an abstract (up to 300 words) between the title and main text of the paper
- Send an e-copy as an attachment (either as word doc or pdf) toRyan.Wasserman@wwu.edu
- In the email to which the paper is attached, provide relevant contact information: Name / Institution / Email / Phone
