CALL FOR PAPERS

Ancient Philosophy Society

17th Annual Independent Meeting

Baylor University, Waco, Texas

April 27- April 29, 2017

Honoring the richness of the American and European philosophical traditions, the Ancient Philosophy Society encourages submissions from a variety of interpretive perspectives. Phenomenological, postmodern, Anglo-American, Straussian, Tübingen School, hermeneutic, psychoanalytic, queer, feminist, and any other interpretations of ancient Greek and Roman philosophical and literary works are welcome.

Please submit papers by e-mail attachment to APS2017@baylor.edu. Deadline: November 15, 2016. The author’s name, institution, and references pertaining to the identity of the author must be omitted from the paper, notes, and bibliography. The e-mail accompanying the submission must include the author’s name, the title of the paper, address, telephone, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation.

  • Papers must be written in English. Submission implies that the paper is entirely the author’s own unpublished work and that, where appropriate, the contributions of others are acknowledged.
  • Papers may not exceed 3,000 words (30 minutes’ reading time, max.), exclusive of footnotes and bibliography. Longer papers will not be forwarded to the Program Committee. Abstracts will not be considered for the program except for the working group session mentioned below.
  • Because papers selected for presentation are collected and provided to meeting participants in a single Proceedings, please observe the following conventions: single-spacing, 1-inch margins on all sides, pages numbered, 12-point font for text, 10-point for footnotes.
  • Papers should be submitted in PDF.
  • Receipt of papers will be acknowledged by e-mail.
  • Only one submission per author will be considered.
  • No one may present a paper in consecutive years.

All papers are reviewed by an anonymous Program Committee selected by the Host and Executive Committee to represent the range of interpretive traditions. Decisions will be reached in January 2017, and authors will be notified by e-mail. You do not need to be a member of the society to submit a paper, but you must join the society to be on the program.

This year, we are creating space on the program for a working group in Ancient Philosophy. The working group format aims to provide participants with feedback on a project in an early stage of development. This year’s topic is “Aristotle and The Non-human other.” If you are interested in participating in the working group, please submit a five hundred word abstract to APS2017@baylor.edu. Please leave the abstract free of identifying information.

The APS values diversity in its membership as well as in its scholarly perspectives. We particularly invite submissions from members of groups underrepresented in philosophy, including women, people of color, LGBTQI individuals, and people with disabilities. The APS conference is wheelchair accessible.

In keeping with this commitment to diversity, the APS will award two prizes of $300 each:

  • The Diversity Prize: awarded to the best paper that is chosen for the program through the anonymous selection process written by a person from a group underrepresented in the discipline.  Please self-identify in the body of your email when you submit your paper, saying, “I would like to be considered for the Diversity Prize after the program selection process.” Please keep your paper free of any identifying information.
  • The Emerging Scholar Prize: awarded to the best paper that is chosen for the program through the anonymous selection process written by a scholar who is either ABD or up to 3 years post Ph.D.  Please self-identify in the body of your email when you submit your paper, saying, “I would like to be considered for the Emerging Scholar Prize after the program selection process.”  Please keep your paper free of any identifying information.
  • Scholars may be considered for both prizes but can only be awarded one.

For current information about the meeting, as well as membership information, consult the APS website: www.ancientphilosophysociety.org.
