Santa Cruz (CA)
The Pacific Study Group of the North American Kant
Society would like to announce a call for papers for graduate students only for its tenth annual meeting to be held
November 12-13, 2011 at the University of California-Santa Cruz. The invited
speakers will be Michelle Grier (University of San Diego), David Hills
(Stanford University), Pierre Keller (UC-Riverside), Abe Stone (UC-Santa Cruz),
and Julie Tenenbaum (Pomona College).
The best paper submitted by a graduate student
will be awarded a stipend of $200 to offset expenses for the conference. The
winning essay is eligible for the Annual Markus Herz Award for the best paper
by a graduate student read at any of the regional NAKS study group meetings.
The Pacific Study Group is an informal group that
meets once a year (historically, in the fall) to facilitate interaction among
Kant scholars by means of 5 or 6 45-minute presentations followed by informal
discussion. One must be a member of NAKS to submit a paper at the PSG meeting.
However, attendance at the PSG meetings is free and open to all. The PSG
receives financial support from the North American Kant Society and from host
Papers submitted for the meetings may discuss any
topic in Kantian Studies. The term "Kantian Studies" is broadly
conceived to include not only contemporary "Kantian" approaches to
philosophical problems but also the discussion of Kant's immediate
predecessors, contemporaries, and successors such as the German Idealists.
