Call for Abstracts: Inside-Outside/Concordia University

Inside-Outside

A Graduate Philosophy Conference

Hosted by the Graduate Philosophy Students’ Association of Concordia University, Montréal, Québec

April 29-30, 2011

Throughout the history of western philosophy, we find a number of conceptual dichotomies—e.g., being-not-being, form-matter, mind-body, male-female, human-animal, and inside-outside.  These dichotomies have either been explicitly invoked at key points in an argument or else have been tacitly presumed.  In the twentieth century, many thinkers from different ‘traditions’ have brought many of these long-standing dichotomies to scrutiny.  The central aim for this conference is to continue with this scrutiny, e.g., determining the conditions or limits of these dichotomies, or, alternatively providing them a new justification.

The Graduate Philosophy Students’ Association of Concordia University invites abstracts by graduate students (excellent undergraduate papers will also be considered) addressing one or many of these conceptual dichotomies. We welcome papers from all styles of philosophy addressing this year’s theme directly—e.g., continental, analytic, and historical. Abstracts of a maximum of 250 words (prepared for blind review, with a cover page) must be submitted to insideoutsideconcordia@gmail.com by February 21, 2011. Abstracts selected will be notified on or around March 4, 2011. Final papers must be suitable for presentation, not exceeding much beyond 4000 words.

Keynote: TBA
