Call For Papers - Spring 2023 Uehiro Philosophy Graduate Student Conference

Title/Topic: What Dreams May Come?: Philosophical Explorations in Dreaming, Suffering, and Death

Date: Thursday, March 2nd & Friday, March 3rd, 2023

Location: University of Hawaii-Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Philosophy Department is calling for papers for its annual Uehiro Graduate Conference “What Dreams May Come?: Philosophical Explorations in Dreaming, Suffering, and Death”. We invite graduate students working in all areas of philosophy to submit papers on the conference theme. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions, and we strongly encourage submissions from members of underrepresented groups. The conference will take place in person. Travel costs will be subsidized for a small number of student presenters who submit full papers. Affordable lodging will be available for all presenters.

We are honored to have Dr. Melanie Rosen (Trent University), Dr. Michael Brady (University of Glasgow), and Arindam Chakrabarti (University of Hawaii-Manoa) as our keynote speakers.

This year’s conference title is inspired by the famous lines in Hamlet:

“To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; aye, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. ”

Papers should explore dreaming, suffering, and death, and grapple with questions that arise out of these facets of life. As such, we invite papers from all philosophical fields and traditions.

Presentations should not exceed twenty (20) minutes in length, and another five (5) minutes for questions. Paper submissions should not exceed 4000 words. Abstracts are also welcome and should not exceed 250 words, but preference for travel funds will be given to completed papers. Submissions should be prepared for blind review. The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2022, and presenters will be notified of our decision by early January.

Send papers as a PDF file and prepared for blind review to - In the body of the e-mail please include: 1) Your name, 2) Title of the paper, 3) Institutional affiliation, 4) Contact information (e-mail, phone, or mailing address).

The conference is free and open to the public.
