*Deadline extended to 12 June*

2015 SEP-FEP Joint Annual Conference: New Frontiers

University of Dundee (Scotland, UK)

3-5 September 2015

While postgraduates can apply to the SEP-FEP general call for papers, the aim of the postgraduate panels is to provide a distinctive atmosphere of critical discussion tailored to postgraduate research.

We invite abstract proposals of 300-500 words for at least one general postgraduate panel and one panel dedicated to Scottish postgraduate research.

General Postgraduate Panels:  Topics may include any area in which the boundaries of European philosophy are being opened to new challenges whether in arenas political, environmental, religious or in the realms of communication, media and technology, aesthetics, hermeneutics, posthumanism, speculative or post-continental theory.

Scottish Postgraduate Panel: New Perspectives on Technology: The aim of this panel is to bring Scottish postgraduate students from different disciplines together in order to discuss new possible directions in the expanding field of research on contemporary technological phenomena.

We invite abstracts from Scottish postgraduate students from all disciplines on questions relating to technology. Particular areas of interest may include how philosophy relates to technology in the following fields: media, film, ethics, the body, new frontiers in literature and narrative, time, the history of art and artistic practices, politics and the question of independence.

 

Submission Instructions

Submissions should be sent to s.gallacher@dundee.ac.uk or e.carney@dundee.ac.uk.

If your abstract proposal is not accepted to the postgraduate panels, it will be entered into the general call for papers.

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2015

Under the conditions of sponsorship by the Scots Philosophical Association, academics and students from Scottish Universities will have their registration fee waived.
