KANT MULTILATERAL COLLOQUIUM
Submission deadline for US participants: February 1, 2016
Hofstra University, with the sponsorship of the North American Kant Society, invites submissions for the next Kant Multilateral Colloquium, to take place at Hofstra University (Hempstead, NY) on August 7-9, 2016. The theme of the meeting is: Kant on Violence, Revolution, and Progress: Historical, Political, and Metaphysical Themes. “Revolution” and “progress” are interpreted broadly, in order to include not only their historical or political meaning, but also Kant’s “Copernican Revolution” in metaphysics, science, aesthetics, religion, etc.
The Multilateral Colloquium is an annual conference involving approximately forty participants from Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, and, more recently, the USA and Russia. This is the first time the meeting will be hosted in the USA. Each of the seven participating countries will be assured up to five slots for speakers.
Please send all papers electronically to Robert Louden at Louden@Maine.edu. Notices of acceptance will be issued by April 15, 2016. Submissions should be prepared for blind review and be limited to 4000 words, including footnotes and references (longer submissions will not be considered). Please prepare your file in PDF format, include an abstract of a maximum of 250 words, and a word count at the end of the paper. Contact information should be sent in a separate Word file.
Presentations should not exceed 35 minutes, followed by 15-20 minutes of discussion. All accepted papers will be available in the members only section of the NAKS website. Papers already presented at other conferences (including NAKS meetings) may not be submitted. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing.
