ATTN: Philosophy Personnel


As president of the Symposium of Philosophy at the University of Central Oklahoma, I am privileged to announce a Call for Papers for our Twelfth Annual Southwestern Conference for Undergraduate Philosophers. The past conferences have proven to be very successful, and we hope to continue providing a stimulating forum for promising undergraduate philosophers.


The Conference will be held on Saturday, February 9th, 2008 in the Pegasus Theater, located on the south side of the Liberal Arts Building on the UCO campus. The Conference will feature Dr. Amy Coplan of California State University, Fullerton as a guest speaker. 


Papers in any subject area of philosophy will be considered. Papers should be about 3,000 words (20 minutes reading time) and in MLA format. The deadline for submissions is December 20th, 2007 for both hard-copies and e-mail (e-mail submissions preferred). Our mailing address is as follows:

This invitation is open to all undergraduate philosophers. Please encourage the authors of your best fall term papers to consider submitting their work! The Symposium of Philosophy will provide commentators. I have attached a flyer announcing this call for papers; I would be grateful if you’d post this somewhere at your institution where it might be seen by students of philosophy.
