JOINT MEETING OF THE MIDWEST STUDY GROUP (MNAKS) AND THE INDIANA PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION (IPA)

Spring Meeting, 08-09 March 2013

Indiana University Southeast (New Albany, IN)

 

    The keynote speaker will be Professor Allen Wood (Indiana University- Bloomington) who will be presenting a paper entitled "The Independence of Right from Ethics."

 

    Although papers in any area of philosophy are welcome, there are different guidelines depending on whether you are submitting a paper to the MNAKS or IPA portion of the meeting. Papers that focus on some aspect of Kantian scholarship should follow the MNAKS guidelines. All other papers should follow the IPA guidelines. Both sets of guidelines can be found below.

 

    MNAKS guidelines: Submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate file, indicating in the body of the paper whether you are a graduate student. The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics of Kantian scholarship (contemporary or historically oriented), including discussions of Kant’s immediate predecessors and successors. Reading time is limited to 30 minutes and submissions should not exceed 25 pages. Graduate student submissions are encouraged.  The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize. Papers already read at other NAKS study groups or meetings may not be submitted. 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 will be posted in the “members only” section of the NAKS website and circulated in advance among participants.  

 

    IPA guidelines: papers should be (i) no more than 14 double-spaced pages, (ii) prepared for blind review, and (iii) accompanied by a separate page that includes title, author information (name, affiliation, and contact information), and an abstract not exceeding 150 words. Suggestions for commentators and session chairs, including self-nominations, are also welcome. The IPA will present an award to the best paper submitted by a graduate student. The award will be accompanied by a cash prize of $100. Graduate student papers submitted for the competition should be identified as such on the title sheet.

 

    All materials should be submitted as either RTF or PDF files to Professor Bryan Hall at hallbw@ius.edu.

 

    The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2013.

 

    This meeting is supported by NAKS, the IPA, and Indiana University Southeast.
