The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University has announced a call for papers for their 2018 Undergraduate Ethics Symposium. Here is information from the Institute about the event:

The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University is proud to announce the 11th Annual Undergraduate Ethics Symposium.

The Undergraduate Ethics Symposium will take place from April 19-21, 2018, on the theme of “Representing Disability.”

This symposium is highly inter-disciplinary. In addition to traditional analytic essays, we welcome submissions from undergraduate creative writers, artists, and filmmakers. We believe the arts are an important component to the exploration of ethics in society.

Scholars should submit a paper on a topic of ethical inquiry or exploration. Writers, artists and filmmakers may submit a short story, series of poems, short play, short screenplay or short film in which an ethical topic and/or dilemma is central.

The symposium is held at The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University, located in a 500 acre nature park. Participating undergraduate students attend seminars with visiting scholars and artists and also hear presentations on the symposium’s theme.

Students who are accepted to the symposium will receive free lodging and meals. Need-based assistance is available for travel. Submissions in all areas of ethical inquiry are encouraged and will be accepted using our online submission form below until February 9, 2018
