15th Annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference (2021)

The Webster University Undergraduate Philosophy Conference is now accepting papers for its virtual conference to be held on April 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2021. Papers should be about 7-10 pages and may be on any philosophical topic (broadly understood).

To make the most of this year’s virtual format, papers selected for presentation will be grouped into panels. Each panelist will offer a brief (five-minute) overview of their work, to be followed by discussion among the panelists and with the others in attendance. Depending on the number of panels organized, we anticipate panels from 3-5 PM on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as through the day Friday (all times CDT).

Please prepare your paper for blind review: the author’s name and other identifying information should not be included in the paper. Instead, give your name and college affiliation in the body of the e-mail message you send to submit the paper for review. A brief abstract is helpful but not required.

As this is an undergraduate conference, no papers by Ph.D.’s or graduate students will be accepted. Papers received by 11:59 PM (CDT) on Sunday, March 28 will be guaranteed consideration.

Submit your paper via email (any standard file type) to submit@websterphilosophyconference.com
