Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is submitting a proposal for a special session at the PSA2020 Biennial Meeting in Baltimore on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020. We are seeking paper abstracts that address topics in philosophy of science that are of special interests to MAP. Each presentation should be around 30 minutes, including Q&A.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
We particularly encourage submissions by members of underrepresented groups in philosophy, graduate students, and junior scholars. We plan to accept 3 abstracts in total.
Abstracts should be no more than 800 words and in a PDF format prepared for anonymous review. You can submit via this link by July 1, 2020. You will hear back from us by July 20. You can contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
Please note that per PSA policy, no one is permitted to present more than once at PSA2020 (excluding presentations at the poster forum).
We understand the immense uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the event that you are unable or unwilling to travel to Baltimore to present in person, we will strive to provide remote presentation as an option.
For members of underrepresented groups in philosophy, the Underrepresented Philosophy of Science Scholars (UPSS) Initiative provides a travel grant to defray travel costs to attend the meeting.
