The Philosophers’ Forum at the University of Missouri-St. Louis presents the second annual Gateway Graduate Philosophy Conference, entitled “Building Bridges.” The conference will occur April 13-15, 2007, with keynote speaker Hubert L. Dreyfus from UC-Berkeley.
Call for Papers
Graduate students and advanced undergraduates are invited to submit high-quality papers roughly 10-15 pages in length and suitable for a 25-30 minute presentation. Submissions may be in any area of philosophy, though special consideration will be given to papers dealing with the theme of the conference, titled “Building Bridges.” A paper that builds bridges is an integrative project that shows the mutual relevance of topics and traditions that are usually separated by a gulf. To take a few examples, such a paper might situate a historical thinker within a lively contemporary debate, place a continental thinker in dialogue with the analytic tradition, show how an Indian philosopher
illuminates a motif of European thought, or explain how insights in metaphysics can lead to ethical enlightenment.
All submissions must include a one paragraph abstract. Documents should be formatted as either MS Word or .pdf files, and should adhere to either the MLA or the Chicago style. Papers should be suitable for blind review, with the following information provided on a separate cover sheet or in the body of your email: Name, Title of Paper, E-mail Address, Institution, and Current Level of Education.
