Call for Individual Papers

The call for individual papers will open on 4 January 2022.

The organizers invite presentation proposals exploring and applying pragmatist ideas to issues and debates in all fields of philosophical and social inquiry, as well as debates in the natural, biomedical and social sciences. Pragmatism being the overall theme of the conference, we encourage the presentation title to reflect explicitly its connections with the theme of the conference. Presentations that explore issues at the interface of Pragmatism and social justice, critical race theory and intersectionality are especially welcome.

Submissions from women scholars and other underrepresented groups in philosophy are especially welcome. This conference follows the BPA/SWIP good practice guidelines

45 minutes (including discussion) will be allocated for each individual paper presentation. The time is fixed and cannot be exceeded. We expect presenters to reserve at least 10 minutes for discussion. The submission abstracts are expected to include a clear description of the paper’s contents and its contribution to its field of inquiry.

Please submit your paper proposal via our online electronic form. Submissions deadline is at midnight (Central European Time) on 7 February 2022. Please follow the instructions (including word limits) given and save the contents of your submission separately in case of technical difficulties. We expect to announce the results of the call by 14 March 2022.
