The Uehiro Cross Currents Philosophy Conference showcases exceptional work by graduate and advanced undergraduate students in comparative philosophy broadly construed (not limited to East-West comparisons). We welcome the submission of papers of high quality in any area of philosophy. Papers of a comparative nature are of particular interest, though comparative panels often include papers addressing a common issue from perspectives not strictly considered to be comparative.
Email papers to email@example.com. Papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation. In the body of the email include: 1) Your name, 2) Title of the paper, 3) Institutional affiliation, 4) Contact information (email, phone number, mailing address), and 5) Whether you would like to be considered for a travel award. Send papers as an attachment in word format with no identifying information for blind review. Notification of acceptance will be sent by January 21, 2013.
The Uehiro Student Essay Award will be presented to the best student presentation. Competitive partial travel subsidies will be available this year for both international and domestic travel. All submissions will be considered for possible publication in the Uehiro Conference Proceedings, published in the past by Cambridge Scholars Press.
