CfP: The Status of Minorities in Philosophy (1/22/12)

  • Posted by: Annika Thiem
  • Posted Date: December 10, 2011
  • Filed Under: Call for Papers
Objective: Our aim is to address epistemological issues of theory and practice that arise around under-represented groups (related to cultural or linguistic back-ground, class, disability, gender, queerness, race) in the various branches of philosophical inquiry. The latter will be broadly understood to include areas such as philosophy of language, ethics, political philosophy, metaphysics of social groups, phenomenology, the history of philosophy, and so forth.

Conference: In addition to the keynote speakers, the weekend will feature student (graduate or undergraduate) paper presentations on the theoretical side of the above theme (some examples of areas might include standpoint theory, objectivity, hermeneutics). All student presenters will be limited to twenty (20) minutes per presentation, which will then be followed by a short question and answer period.

Workshop: The event will also include a workshop portion of the weekend devoted to developing the practical side of the conference themes (e.g. implicit bias, stereotype threat, strategies for addressing problems faced by minorities in Philosophy) by providing a forum for more sustained conversation and engagement.

We invite quality graduate and undergraduate papers that address the themes of the conference; the problem of the under-representation of groups in philosophy or the implications status of minorities in the profession more broadly. Papers in both “analytic” and “continental” traditions are welcome. Papers in French are welcome.

Submission Guidelines  
Student presentations will not exceed twenty (20) minutes in length, followed by a question and answer period. Therefore, papers should not (grossly) exceed 3,500 words (not including footnotes). Submissions must include the following: an abstract of up to 300 words, paper title, school affiliation, and the author’s current status. The paper should be prepared for an anonymous review process (remove any information that can identify you from the paper).

The same author(s) may submit up to two papers for consideration. Papers that contain previously published materials should be identified as such.

Please send submissions and questions to:   concordia.mcgill.2012@gmail.com
Submission Deadline:  January 22nd, 2012

Applicants will be contact with final decisions by February 25, 2012.
