U of T Undergraduate Conference

Call for Papers:
University of Toronto
Undergraduate Philosophy Research Conference 2022 Deadline: Monday, February 28, 2021 (11:59 pm EST)

The Conference
On April 8-9, 2022, the Department of Philosophy will hold its annual Undergraduate Philosophy Research Conference. We are currently planning for the conference to be held in person on the St. George campus, but are prepared for an online event if public health and/or University requirements require. There will be 10-12 spaces available for undergraduate students to present their research. Presentations will each be 25-30 minutes long, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A. This is an open call to all University of Toronto students, from all campuses.

We are seeking novel and clearly executed papers that can be made into interesting 25-30 minute presentations. Suitable papers will be around, but not over, 3000 words in length. Anonymize your paper and email it as a PDF file to ugphilconference.uoft@gmail.com by 11:59pm EST on Monday, February 28th. Please include a word count at the beginning of your paper. To ensure you have properly anonymized your paper, please review the document included below (courtesy of Noēsis). 

A few notes:
- If you do not have a completed paper but do have a suitably presentable work in progress in which all relevant ideas are resolved, feel free to send us an abstract or thorough outline.
- If you have an interdisciplinary paper that you think has substantial philosophical content, you are more than welcome to submit it. You may include a brief note at the topof your submission if you would like to make a case for your paper’s philosophical merit, but this is not necessary.

As well as submissions, please send any questions to ugphilconference.uoft@gmail.com. The account will be monitored closely in the weeks leading up the deadline.
