MIDWEST NAKS STUDY GROUP
Submission deadline: June 30th, 2017.
Keynote: Daniel Warren (UC Berkeley).
The Midwest Study Group of NAKS invites submission for its Fall 2017 meeting to be held October 6-7th at University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (hosted by Michael Bennett McNulty).
Submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate document, indicating whether you are a graduate student. Presentation time is limited to 25 minutes and submissions should not exceed 20 pages (double-spaced, regular margins).
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.
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. We especially encourage submissions from individuals of groups underrepresented in philosophy and Kant scholarship in particular.
The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize awarded by NAKS. Papers already presented at other NAKS study groups or meetings are not eligible for submission. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing (though this is not required in order to submit a paper).
Papers should be submitted electronically (in .pdf or .docx format) to the Program Committee Chair, Corey W. Dyck.
