Query from a Reader: Undergraduate Journals or Conferences? September 30, 2011

Filed under: queries from readers — Jender @ 2:41 pm

I’ve just had a query from a reader looking for undergraduate journals or conferences to submit some work to. Please put your suggestions in comments!

  1. Anonymous Says:

    I don’t know about journals, but since Sheffield’s first undergrad conference in 2010, there have been at least another three show up this year (either that or they were just more quiet about it before). As far as I’m aware there’s Sheffield, King’s College, The Dumfries campus in Glasgow aaand one more that I’ve forgotten. But they all tend to be held in the Spring semester so I don’t know of any happening soon. So keep an eye out on facebook for those unis, and I reckon that even more might start up their own this year!

  2. This page lists a lot of events, many of them regular ones: http://www.philosophynow.org/events

  3. Kate Norlock Says:

    I usually refer my students to Trinity University’s excellent website; see this page for journals, and the nav bar on the left of that page also provides conferences:

  4. Kate Norlock Says:

    And I should add: They don’t alert users to the fact that there are two journals called Aporia, however. They link to the Aporia journal out of Brigham Young, the first link below, but for some students it sure may be easier to get to Dartmouth’s Aporia conference, which is also a journal producer (second link):

  5. Ruth Chang Says:

    Here is a quickly collated list of 22 undergraduate journals or conference opportunities from last year that I compiled for undergraduates at Rutgers. Since most of these are going concerns, they should be accepting submissions for this year too.

    Although any paper related to religion and philosophy will be

    to those addressing this year’s theme, “Race in America.” As
    philosopher Cornel West asserted,
    “A fully functional multiracial society cannot be achieved without a
    sense of history and open,
    honest dialogue.” Accordingly, this year’s conference will
    forthrightly address philosophical
    and religious questions of race and how these questions relate to
    politics, culture, society, and
    history. To begin our conversation, this year’s keynote speaker will
    be George Yancy, Associate
    Professor of Philosophy at Duquesne University and author of Black
    Bodies, White Gazes: The
    Continuing Significance of Race.

    Paper proposals (roughly 250 words) should give a concise description
    of the presentation. The
    deadline for proposals is February 18, 2011. Please include your full
    name, paper title,
    institution, e-mail, phone number, and the name and contact
    information of your major professor.
    Presenters must submit their full paper by March 11, 2011 to be
    considered for conference
    prizes. Proposals and final papers should be sent via e-mail
    attachment to Dr. Arthur Remillard
    at aremillard@francis.edu.

    The keynote address will be given on Friday evening, with a student-
    led discussion to follow. All
    student presentations will be given on Saturday from approximately
    9:00am-5:00pm. This
    conference is open to the public and free for presenters and non-
    presenters alike.

    For more information, directions, contacts, scheduling, etc., please
    visit our website:
    http://www.francis.edu/NAUCRP.htm or join the Facebook group, “St. Francis
    University Department
    of Philosophy and Religious Studies.” This conference is organized by

    Ball State University’s philosophy department has an undergraduate philosophy journal. Here’s the link: http://stance.iweb.bsu.edu/About_Us.html

  7. helenesch Says:

    Michigan State University runs a conference for graduate students in philosophy. It’s held every spring, and often has a focus in social and political philosophy. I haven’t yet seen the call for papers for this coming year, but it will likely be available soon. (The department at Michigan State is very feminist-friendly, and I would highly recommend this conference to any grad students reading this blog,)
