2018 MSG NAKS Meeting

Meeting of the Midwest Study Group of the North American Kant Society

University of Wisconsin, Madison, Oct. 26-27, 2018

Meeting Host: James Messina

Call for papers:  The Midwest Study Group of NAKS invites submission for its Fall 2018 meeting to be held October 26-27th at University of Wisconsin, Madison (hosted by James Messina). 

Keynote:  Desmond Hogan (Princeton) will be the keynote speaker for the meeting.

Submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate document, indicating whether you are a graduate student. Presentation time is limited to 25 minutes and submissions that exceed 20 pages (double-spaced, regular margins) will not be considered.

The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics of Kantian scholarship (both contemporary and historically-oriented), including discussions of Kant’s immediate predecessors and successors. We especially encourage submissions from individuals of groups underrepresented in philosophy and Kant scholarship in particular.

The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize awarded by NAKS. Papers already presented at other NAKS study groups or meetings are not eligible for submission. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing (though this is not required in order to submit a paper).

The deadline for submissions is June 30th, 2018. Papers should be submitted electronically (in .pdf or .docx format) to the Program Committee Chair, Corey W. Dyck
