CFP: Aporia Undergraduate Philosophy Conference

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 5th with welcoming and closing events on Friday the 4th and Sunday the 6th.

The Aporia Editorial Board is now accepting submissions for presentation and question and answer sessions on Saturday. Top papers will be awarded prizes and be published in the spring issue of Aporia. They are also encouraging volunteers to provide comments on selected papers. The Dartmouth community will aid students with travel arrangements and housing when possible.

The paper submission deadline is January 1st. Students may register any time before the conference for $30. Those who register before January 1st 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.

All those wishing to attend may email to receive registration information. See the conference webpage for details.

Due to several requests to extend our deadline, submissions for both Aporia (journal) and the conference will be extended through February 1st, 2008. To clarify, students do NOT have to register when submitting and can wait to receive confirmation of acceptance to the conference. Non-presenters are more than welcome to participate in the conference and we are striving to make the experience enjoyable on all levels of engagement.

We are also excited to announce that Dr. Harry Frankfurt, professor emeritus of Princeton University and author of bestsellers "On Bullshit," "On Truth," and "Demons, Dreamers, and Madmen" has agreed to serve as the keynote speaker. His academic interests explore moral philosophy, philosophy of mind, and rationalism. Please read more about our guest in the links provided below.
