NYU Philosophy Forum Conference

Call for Papers: NYU Undergraduate Philosophy Conference 2021

Deadline: April 15, 2021

NYU Philosophy Forum, the undergraduate philosophy club at NYU, is hosting its inaugural Annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference at NYU (AUPC@NYU) and is now accepting papers for the conference.
AUPC@NYU envisions not only offering a platform for undergraduate philosophy students to share their work and have thought-provoking discussions with their peers, but also fostering a supportive network among philosophy students. Along with paper discussion sessions, AUPC@NYU will also host guest speeches, graduate study panels, and networking events.
In the times of a global pandemic, we see the value of asking and exploring important questions. Witnessing the world looking to achieve a new equilibrium, we believe that fostering philosophical discussions is of unique value.
Call for Papers
We are looking for high-quality philosophy papers written by current undergraduates. Ideally, the paper should be a piece that one could submit in a philosophy course, but all papers in any area of philosophy are welcome for review. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present at our virtual conference on May 22nd - 23rd. Applications will close on April 15th. You will be notified in early May with our decision.
The following are the criteria we expect papers to meet for being considered for conference participation:
- The paper could be on any topic, but it should be written by a current undergraduate;
- The paper should be 1500 ~ 2500 words; an abstract of 200 ~ 400 words is required (please include it in the PDF file you submit);
- The paper has not been published elsewhere and, if accepted, cannot become published elsewhere. Applications for publication elsewhere should be withdrawn if you choose to participate in our conference;
- Each author can submit up to 2 papers (you will need to submit two separate applications); however, the committee will only accept at most 1 paper from one author for the conference.
Formatting requirements
- Your paper should be anonymized. That is, the paper itself cannot contain any identifying information, e.g., your name, your school, and any other personal information;
- Please submit your paper and your abstract in a PDF document named in the form of “First Name_Last Name_Institution” (and add “1” or “2” in the title if you are submitting two papers).
Please submit papers here.
We look forward to reading your papers! If you have any questions, please contact conference@nyuaupc.org
