CFP – Ancient Philosophy Society – Prizes for Underrepresented Scholar and for Emerging Scholar

Sixteenth Annual Independent Meeting
28 April-1 May, 2016 in Portland, Maine
Co-sponsored by Colby College and the Ancient Philosophy Society

Honoring the richness of the American and European philosophical traditions, the Ancient Philosophy Society supports phenomenological, postmodern, Anglo-American, Straussian, Tübingen School, hermeneutic, psychoanalytic, queer, and feminist interpretations of ancient Greek and Roman philosophical and literary works.

Submit papers by e-mail attachment to aps2016@colby.edu on any topic in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy.

Deadline: November 22, 2015.

For the first time this year, the APS will award two travel 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 6 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.

The APS values diversity and particularly invites 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.
