JOINT MEETING OF THE MIDWEST STUDY GROUP (MNAKS) AND THE INDIANA
PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION (IPA)
Spring Meeting, 08-09 March 2013
University Southeast (New Albany, IN)
The keynote speaker will be Professor Allen Wood (Indiana University-
Bloomington) who will be presenting a paper entitled "The Independence of
Right from Ethics."
Although papers in any area of philosophy are welcome, there are
different guidelines depending on whether you are submitting a paper to the
MNAKS or IPA portion of the meeting. Papers that focus on some aspect of
Kantian scholarship should follow the MNAKS guidelines. All other papers should
follow the IPA guidelines. Both sets of guidelines can be found below.
MNAKS guidelines: 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. The selection committee welcomes contributions
on all topics of Kantian scholarship (contemporary or historically oriented),
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.
IPA guidelines: papers should be (i) no more than 14 double-spaced
pages, (ii) prepared for blind review, and (iii) accompanied by a separate page
that includes title, author information (name, affiliation, and contact
information), and an abstract not exceeding 150 words. Suggestions for
commentators and session chairs, including self-nominations, are also welcome.
The IPA will present an award to the best paper submitted by a graduate
student. The award will be accompanied by a cash prize of $100. Graduate
student papers submitted for the competition should be identified as such on
the title sheet.
All materials should be submitted as either RTF or PDF files to
Professor Bryan Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submissions is January
