As tradition has it, the university of the President of the Central States Philosophical Association hosts the annual meetings. So, the 2011 meeting will take place in my current hometown St. Louis. Our excellent Vice President, Paul Weirich, Curators' Professor at University of Missouri, Columbia, has just issued the following call for papers:
Central States Philosophical Association (CSPA) 2011 Call for Papers
The 2011 Central States Philosophical Association meeting, hosted by the University of Missouri–St. Louis, will take place at:
The Moonrise Hotel, 6177 Delmar, St. Louis, MO 63112
September 15–17, 2011
Keynote Speakers: John Hawthorne (University of Oxford) and John Doris (Washington University)
You need not be a member of an institution in the central states area to participate. Colloquium papers in any area of philosophy are welcome. Submissions dealing with aspects of John Hawthorne's or John Doris’s work are encouraged. Papers are limited to 3,000 words. All submissions must include on the title page, author information, a word count for the paper, and an abstract (not longer than 150 words). The title page and the paper should be submitted as separate documents. No author-identifying references should appear in the paper. Both the title page and the paper should be submitted as RTF or PDF files.
The program will include panels on these topics:
(1) The value problem in epistemology
(2) Mind: Physicalism vs. non-physicalism
(3) Metaphysics: Natural kinds
(4) Intrinsic value
To join a panel, submit a brief proposal of no more than 500 words that advances a point about the panel’s topic. Include a title page in a separate document with author information and the proposal’s word count, and submit both the proposal, prepared for blind reviewing, and the title page as RTF or PDF files. Submitting a panel proposal in addition to colloquium paper is permissible, but at most one will be accepted.
The deadline for submissions is: May 31, 2011.
Submissions should be sent to Leo Yan at: email@example.com. Responses to submissions will be sent by July 31, 2011.
