The Eastern Study Group of the NAKS invites submissions for its 9th annual meeting to take place at Princeton University (Princeton, NJ) on Friday and Saturday, April  27-8 , 2012. Our host this year is Professor Desmond Hogan.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, January 16, 2012. Please send all papers electronically to the organizer, Professor Pablo Muchnik, pablo_muchnik@emerson.edu.


Submissions should be prepared for blind review. Please send contact information in a separate file, indicating in the body of the paper whether you are a graduate student. Announcements about decisions will be made in late February.


The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics of Kantian scholarship, contemporary or historically oriented, and including discussions of Kant’s immediate predecessors and successors. Reading time is limited to 30 minutes and submissions should not exceed 25 pages. Graduate student submissions are encouraged.  The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize.


Papers already read 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. During the conference, we will devote some time for discussion of primary sources.


Information about hotel and transportation will be available in December.

From Newark Liberty International Airport To Princeton Campus:

From Newark Airport take the AirTrain monorail and transfer to NJ Transit train. You can purchase the NJ Transit ticket from a machine in the airport monorail station in your arrival terminal, before boarding the monorail or you can purchase it in the NJ Transit rail station, to which the monorail will take you.  Be sure to buy a New Jersey Transit ticket to Princeton not an Amtrak ticket.   NJ Transit trains run every half hour or less.  Take southbound trains with destination Trenton (not trains to the Jersey shore) and purchase a ticket to Princeton.  Get off the train at Princeton Junction.


N.J. Transit offers a shuttle train, known locally as the “Dinky,” between Princeton Junction and the Princeton University campus.  After you get to campus, it’s about a 10 minute walk from the Dinky station to the Nassau Inn.  (Go up on University Place, make a right on Nassau Street, and a left on Palmer Square East).

From Princeton Campus To Newark Liberty International Airport:

N.J. Transit offers a shuttle train, known locally as the “Dinky,” between campus (across from McCarter Theatre) and Princeton Junction.  At Princeton Junction, you may transfer to N.J. Transit’s Northeast Corridor line

northbound. Get off the train at Newark Liberty International Airport and transfer to the AirTrain monorail.  When coming from Princeton to the airport, be sure to retain your train ticket since it is needed to get through the turnstiles to get to the monorail.
