Kentucky Philosophical Association (KPA)
Summer 2021 Scholars Workshop
July 22-23, 2021
Hosted at Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY
Call for Abstracts
Submissions deadline May 1, 2021
The KPA invites the submission of abstracts for papers (4,000-7,000 words) on any topic in philosophy. We invite faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars to share in the opportunity to present and discuss their current work.
Abstracts should be 150 words or less. Decisions will be announced the first week of June. A draft of the accepted paper will be due by July 1, 2021 and distributed among the participants. Each participant will have 80 minutes for their work, which includes an overview of the paper and discussion.
At this time, we are planning for a hybrid workshop with virtual participation and in-person attendance if it is safe to do so. If it is not possible to be in-person, the workshop will be held virtually.
Please email submissions to Eva Cadavid at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “KPA 2021 workshop abstract”. Include in the email the following information:
1. Title of paper
2. 150-word abstract (attached as a pdf)
3. Author's name
4. Author's institutional affiliation (if applicable)
5. Author's email address
