UCLA Minorities and Philosophy Conference
Critiquing the Canon
January 21st, 2017
Keynote Speaker: Peter K.J. Park (University of Texas at Dallas)
Call for Papers (Deadline: December 16th, 2016):
The UCLA chapter of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) invites submissions of papers addressing the topic of the philosophical canon. In recent years, attention has been drawn to the exclusionary practices resulting in the ``core'' works of philosophy---those texts most often examined within academic debates and university curricula. We aim to facilitate a critical discussion of these practices.
Anonymized abstracts of 500 words or less should be emailed to <firstname.lastname@example.org> by December 16th, 2016. Submissions should be accompanied by a separate cover sheet including the author's name, affiliation, and contact information. Decisions will be announced by January 1st, 2017. Allotted presentation time for speakers will be 30 minutes.
Both historical and theoretical papers are welcome. Possible areas of exploration include:
2017 Duquesne Women in Philosophy (D-WiP) Conference
Critical Philosophies of Life
Keynote speaker: Dr. Cynthia Willett (Emory University)
Duquesne Women in Philosophy invites philosophical papers and abstracts on the broad theme of “life.” Full papers of approximately 3000 words suitable for a 20 minute presentation will be prioritized, though long abstracts of a minimum 700 words are also welcome. Preference will be given to papers that engage with normative assumptions and traditional ways of framing the notion of ‘life’ as well as papers from perspectives in feminist, anti-racist, critical philosophies of race, disability, queer, post-colonial studies, and perspectives outside the Western tradition, such as those from Asia, Latin America, and Africa. The conference will take place March24-25 at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA.
Please send submissions prepared for blind review to email@example.com by January 5th 2017.
The conference will prioritize accessibility for all. For any questions or concerns please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by January 15th.
