23-24 October 2014
The Lehigh University Philosophy Department invites submissions for the Second Annual Conference in Philosophy. The organisers are interested in submissions that challenge, redraw, or even erase traditional divisions either within philosophy or between philosophy and other disciplines.
Submissions might address connections/divisions between philosophy and disciplines such as art history, literary studies, anthropology, history, various sciences, disability studies, gender studies, economics, race theory; or philosophy’s complacent periodizations into, for example, pre-Socratic, ancient, modern, contemporary; or its ready-made dichotomies, such as materialism/idealism, dualism/monism, naturalism/non-naturalism, continental/analytic, empiricism/rationalism, theory/practice.
Electronic submission of detailed abstracts (750-1000 words) should be in Word or pdf format. Reading time for presented papers is 30 minutes. Submission deadline is 15 May 2014.
