The theme for the first conference will be ‘Society’ and is to be broadly interpreted. Suggested topics include, but are by no means limited to:
Society as a philosophical concept.
How is society portrayed or used as a tool for explanation in philosophy?
The contrast between secret and public societies; the role of society in building philosophical sects or schools.
The integration or exclusion of philosophers in society.
How do representations of society in non-philosophical texts put philosophical themes and tropes to use in their exposition and to what end?
How do different societies, whether ancient or modern, receive and interpret particular philosophical doctrines?
We now invite abstracts of no more than 300 words for 20 minute papers to be sent to email@example.com no later than the 10th February 2016. We also welcome proposals for coordinated panels consisting of three papers. These should be presented in a single file with all abstracts and an extra 100 word statement outlining the panel's unity and relevance to the theme ‘Society’.
Since we intend to assess abstracts anonymously, please send the abstracts as PDF files including the title of the talk but with no identifying information in the file content or file name. Please include name, degree currently under study, institution and the title of the talk in the body of the email.
