Regular submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate document, indicating whether you are a graduate student. The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics of Kantian scholarship (both contemporary and historically oriented), including discussions of Kant’s immediate predecessors and successors. Reading time is limited to 25 minutes and submissions should not exceed 20 pages.
In addition, the program committee invites proposals for panel discussions on Kantian topics or author-meets-critics sessions on recently published books. Proposals should include a short (up to 500 words) description of the topic/summary of the book to be discussed, as well as brief biographies of the confirmed participants.
Graduate student submissions are encouraged. The best graduate student paper will receive a small stipend and the speaker will be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize awarded by NAKS (note that panel participants will not be eligible for the stipend). Papers or panel presentations already accepted or presented at other NAKS study groups or meetings will not be considered. All presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing. Selected papers are eligible to be considered for inclusion in the book series Rethinking Kant, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishers. Papers selected for presentation may be posted in the “members only” section of the NAKS website and circulated in advance among participants.
Papers should be submitted electronically (in .pdf or .docx format) to the Program Committee Chair, Corey W. Dyck at firstname.lastname@example.org
