9th Annual Wisconsin Metaethics Workshop

UW-Madison is hosting yet another Metaethics Workshop this weekend. The schedule and other information can be found here:

The keynote address will be given by Jonathan Dancy (Reading and Texas) on Saturday, 9/29, from 3:20 until 4:50.  His talk is entitled "From Thought to Action." There are a number of other great philosophers giving talks. If you're in the area, I encourage you to come.

If you can't make it, consider coming to next year's workshop. If you're interested in presenting a paper, abstracts will likely be due in June for the workshop in September 2013.

Undergraduate Journal - Arete

Arete, The Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Rutgers University, is now accepting paper submissions for publication in its Spring 2013 issue. On the order of 3 papers will be published, digitally and in print (limited run).

Traditionally only work from college upperclassmen is encouraged. Analytic rigor is prerequisite for publication. Papers from any field of philosophy are welcome.

Submissions should not exceed 8,000 words, with a cover page, abstract, and citations in APA format. Do not include information in the text of your paper that identifies the author or the institution you attend. Submit papers by attachment, (from an email address we can use to correspond with you) in Word document or PDF format, to by October 15th, 2012. 

We will email you on or shortly after that date to confirm our receipt of your paper. Based on the number of submissions we have received in the past, it will take us some time to read all the papers submitted for this issue. Consequently the authors of papers accepted for publication will be notified in December.
