The First Annual Online Undergraduate Ethics Conference is a new project sponsored by the Jackson Family Center for Ethics & Values at Coastal Carolina University. The conference, which will take place entirely online, will provide a forum in which exceptional undergraduates can present their work and receive commentary from their peers and from professional philosophers.
We invite papers of high quality in any area of philosophical ethics (metaethics, moral psychology, normative ethics, applied ethics, etc.). Submissions should be no more than 4,000 words and in MS Word format. We welcome papers from all (and only) undergraduate students.
The CFP is here: http://www.coastalethics.org/
Deadline for paper submission: February 1, 2013
Notification of acceptance: early March 2013
Submissions prepared for blind review should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If a student’s paper is accepted for the main program, then the student will be asked to record a short (max. 20 minutes) video presentation. Video presentations will be due by April 1, 2013 and will be made publicly available on the official conference website.
We also invite the participation of philosophers (faculty or grad students). We want this conference to be an opportunity for undergraduate students to receive commentary from professionals in the field. Those who are interested in serving as a commentator should send an expression of interest to email@example.com. Note that serving as a commentator involves recording a short (max. 10 min.) video. We will match commentators with papers based on areas of interest.
Any questions, comments, or suggestions should be sent to David Killoren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
