This year we would like especially to encourage submissions related to Kant’s Critique of the Power of Judgment. Reading time is limited to 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of discussion. The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize. Women, minorities, and graduate students are especially encouraged to submit.

Papers already read or accepted at other NAKS study groups or meetings may not be submitted. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing. Selected papers are eligible to be considered for inclusion in the book series Rethinking Kant, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishers.

Papers will be posted in the “members only” section of the NAKS website and circulated in advance among participants, who are expected to have read them at the time of the conference.
