CFP: Dartmouth Undergraduate Philosophy Conference

21 January 2010

Aporia, Dartmouth College’s Philosophy Journal, is organizing a conference for promising undergraduate philosophers. The core part of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Philosophy Conference will take place on Saturday April 17th with welcoming and closing events on Friday the 16th and Sunday the 18th. This flexibility will allow students to choose both arrival and departure dates to better suit their travel plans. During that Saturday, we will ask selected students to present their work. To be eligible to share any and all philosophical endeavors, we are calling upon students to submit their 5-20 page papers We will select the most impressive pieces for presentation and question and answer sessions on Saturday. Top papers will also be awarded prizes and be published in the spring issue of Aporia. On Saturday evening we will have a prominent philosopher to serve as keynote speaker who will also be available for conversation over dinner. As speaker selection and conference scheduling are finalized, we will post more detailed information on our website:

All those wishing to attend may email to receive registration information. We encourage students to submit work or volunteer to provide comment on selected papers, but neither is required for attendance. The Dartmouth community will aid students with travel arrangements and housing when possible.

The paper submission deadline is February 20th. Students may register any time before the conference for $30. Those who register before January 31st will get $10 off the registration fee. Additionally, if five or more students from one institution register, they will all get $10 off the registration fee.
