Call for Papers

Michigan State University Department of Philosophy Graduate Student Conference

Occupy Philosophy:
Dialogue and Reflection on Economic Inequality, Capitalism, and Democracy in America

February 10-11, 2012


In light of recent events illuminating ongoing critiques of how wealth and resources are distributed in America, it is timely to interrogate the ethical, conceptual and methodological issues arising when capitalism and other political economic systems are evaluated. This conference is primarily concerned with the ways that philosophy can mediate discussions of economic power, human welfare, institutional justice, and the cost-benefit analyses that inform economic choices.

Submission Guidelines:
We invite submissions of papers by graduate students. We welcome papers that broadly address issues in social and political philosophy; preference will be given to original contributions that incorporate discussions of the recent “Occupation movement” and related events. Presentations should not exceed 30 minutes in length, and will be followed by a short commentary and moderated question and answer sessions. Submission deadline is January 6, 2012. Please submit abstract in addition to a paper suitable for blind review at philconf@msu.edu <mailto:phlconf@msu.edu> .

Featured Speakers:
Featured Faculty:
John H. McClendon III, Professor of Philosophy at MSU

Keynote:
Jason Read, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine
