STANCE: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal
CALL FOR PAPERS
Stance seeks original philosophical papers authored by current undergraduates.
Stance welcomes papers concerning any philosophical topic. Current undergraduates may submit a paper between 1500 and 3500 words in length (footnotes may extend the word limit 500 words at most). Stance asks that each undergraduate only submit one paper for the journal per year. Papers should avoid unnecessary technicality and strive to be accessible to the widest possible audience without sacrificing clarity or rigor. They are evaluated on the following criteria: depth of inquiry, quality of research/academic rigor, creativity, lucidity, struggle, significance, and, most importantly, originality.
- Manuscripts should be in Microsoft Word (.doc) format and sent as an attachment to email@example.com
- Manuscripts should be double-spaced (including quotations, excerpts, and footnotes)
The right margin should not be justified
- To facilitate our anonymous review process, submissions are to be prepared for anonymous review. Include a cover page with the author’s name, affiliation, title, and email address. Papers, including footnotes, should have no other identifying markers.
- Footnotes should follow Chicago Manual of Style. A style sheet with examples is available on our website under More about Stance – Information for Authors.
- Please use American spellings and punctuation, except when directly quoting a source that has followed British style.
DEADLINE: December 16, 2016
The Examined Life
An Undergraduate Conference in the Liberal Arts
March 23-24, 2017
Lebanon Valley College
We invite undergraduate students to submit proposals on topics related to the Liberal Arts disciplines associated with the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. While proposals might address any appropriate topic, priority will be given to those related to this year’s theme, “The Cultural Politics of Memory.” Memory plays a central role in shaping our identity, both individual and collective. However, memories are not mere representations of the past but active processes of production that reconfigure our relation to the present and future. How we remember, what we choose to remember over what we choose to forget, involves the question of power that flows through a range of social relations and institutions including politics, science, the arts, religion, economy, technology, and media. At our conference, we will explore the diverse ways and forms in which memory shapes our social existence.
The keynote address will be delivered by H. Peter Steeves, Professor of philosophy and Director of Humanities Center, DePaul University.
We encourage traditional paper presentations as well as posters, films, art, poetry, drama, and other forms of creative expression. Presenters will have approximately 20 minutes per session. At the conclusion of the conference, a panel of judges will award the top student performers with cash prizes.
Paper proposals (approximately 250 words) are due by February 23, 2017. Please include your full name, title, format (paper, poster, etc.), institution, email, phone number, and the name and contact information of your academic advisor. All paper presentations must be submitted in full by March 19, 2017. Email proposals and papers to TELUndergradConference@gmail.com
This conference is open to the public and free for presenters and non-presenters. For more information, please visit our website (https://examinedlifeconference.wordpress.com/) or contact Dr. An Yountae at firstname.lastname@example.org.
