Trent Student Symposium: March 24, 2012

*CALL FOR PAPERS* deadline February 18, 2012.

The Philosophy Society is proud to present a Symposium on March 24, 2012.  The Symposium is a longstanding tradition of the Philosophy Department.  It is a one-day event hosted by the Philosophy Society and focusing on the presentation of students’ original work.

This is a call for papers to be considered for presentation at this year’s Symposium.  With this call, we ask that you submit a paper that you would like to present to an audience of your peers.   Typically, students participating in this event present versions of term papers or research projects.  However, submissions need not have been previously submitted for credit—works in progress will be considered too.  We welcome submissions that present ideas you find interesting and are likely to raise questions and spark conversation.

Papers are to be submitted to Professor Byron Stoyles (Lady Eaton College, N114).  This can be done by leaving your paper with Kathy Fife in the Departmental office (Lady Eaton College, S.118).  Submissions can also be emailed directly to Professor Stoyles (byronstoyles [at] trentu [dot] ca).  All submissions must be received no later than February 18, 2012.

Submissions should be suitable for presentation.  To allow time for questions and comments, each presentation will be 20 minutes in length or less.  This means that papers submitted for consideration should be limited to approximately 8-pages of double-spaced, 12-point font.  They can be shorter.  Please include a separate title page with your paper.  The title page should make clear that the submission is to be considered for presentation at the Student Symposium.  The title page should also indicate the title of the paper, your name and your contact information (especially your email address).  Submissions will be reviewed by members of the Department of Philosophy.  Authors will be notified by email of whether their papers have been accepted for presentation.
