Eastern Study Group - NAKS

Call for Papers

The Eastern Study Group of the NAKS announces its sixth annual meeting at The Pennsylvania State University. The meeting will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 24-25, 2009, and will be hosted by Professor Jennifer Mensch.

Keynote Speakers:

April 24, Eckart Förster, The Johns Hopkins University. Title: "Incongruous Counterparts"

April 25, Robert Bernasconi, The Pennsylvania State University. Title: “The Place of Race in Kant’s Physical Geography and in the Writings of the 1790s”

The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 15, 2009. Please send all papers electronically to the organizer, Professor Pablo Muchnik, pmuchnik@siena.edu.

Submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate file, only indicating in the body of the paper whether the submission is from a graduate student.

The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics in Kantian scholarship (broadly construed). However, preference will be given this year to papers in the tradition of the history of philosophy. Reading time is limited to 30 minutes, leaving plenty of opportunity for discussion during the conference. Submissions should not exceed 25 pages. Graduate student submissions are encouraged. The best graduate student paper will receive a $100 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Award. Papers already read at other NAKS study groups may not be submitted.

We have reserved a block of 18 rooms at the Days Inn-Penn State, 240 S. Pugh Street, State College, PA 16801, (814) 238-8454. Conference Name: NAKS; Rate: 79$/night. Reservations must be made by March 24, 2009 for conference rate.
