Hi everybody,

So we all want to be really famous. And obviously, the best way to be really famous is to be a great philosopher!! With these thoughts in mind, you should consider submitting to the following conferences.

PS, to my endeared peons: I will grace you with my presence tonight. I promise.



The 16th Annual Harvard-MIT Graduate Student Philosophy Conference.

April 26, 2008

Submissions due: Friday, January 18, 2008

Keynote Speaker: Professor Thomas M. Scanlon, Harvard University

We seek submissions from graduate students in any area of philosophy. Submissions should be suitable for a 40 minute presentation. As guidance, a 4000 word paper usually takes about 40 minutes to read. All submissions should be accompanied by a short abstract of 200 words maximum. No identifying information should appear in the body of the paper or the abstract. Instead, please include a cover sheet with submitter's name, address, e-mail, telephone number, name of his or her institution, and title of the paper.

Papers should be submitted by email to gradphilconf [at] mit [dot] edu in one of the following formats: .pdf, .rtf, .doc. We can only accept one submission per applicant, so please make sure that the version of the paper you send is the one you would like considered.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. [gradphilconf [at] mit [dot] edu]



I am writing to inform you that the McGill-CREOR Graduate Students' Conference is currently accepting paper proposals. The topic for this year's conference is:

Breaking out of Subjectivity: Contemporary Challenges in the Study of Religion

The conference takes place on Friday, March 7, 2008, at McGill University in Montreal. Paper proposals are due by January 11, 2008. I have attached a call for papers which provides further details on the conference. More information is also available on our website:

One goal of the conference is to encourage the interdisciplinary study of religion, and we therefore welcome proposals from graduate students specializing in any scholarly discipline, including: Anthropology, Ethnic Studies, History, Law, Literature, Linguistics, Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology, Other Areas of Arts and Humanities, and
Cross-disciplinary areas of the above related to each other or other

If you could please distribute this as widely as possible, it would be greatly appreciated.
