Call For Papers

Philosophers’ Rally 2014: Selves & Persons
24th & 25th April 2014, Radboud University Nijmegen
Abstracts due: February 1st, 2014
Confirmed keynote speakers: Simon Critchley, Tim Thornton, Katalin Farkas

On April 24th and 25th, the Radboud University Nijmegen will host the 2014 edition of the annual Dutch Philosophers’ Rally: a two-day conference organized by students under the banner of the Dutch Association for Philosophy Students. The Philosophers’ Rally aims to offer talented students of all levels (undergraduate to PhD) an opportunity to present their own research and to become acquainted with the work of their peers. The Rally aims to be an inspiring platform where both young as well as very experienced philosophers can meet and exchange ideas.

The theme for this edition of the Philosophers’ Rally will be ‘Selves & Persons’:

The philosophical question ‘Who are we?’ shows up in many debates and contexts. The difficulty is that each time it surfaces, the meaning of ‘we’ may differ. It can mean ‘we’ as humans, as organisms, as citizens, as men or women, and a countless variety of other things. This shows that this question transgresses different philosophical genres and ages. The common goal these different genres share is the quest for identity and recognition of what it means to be a self or a person, outside of their immediate context.

Thus, for the Philosophers’ Rally 2014 – held this year at Radboud University Nijmegen – we will be searching for answers to that question: what does it mean to be a self or person? And hopefully, that question will be answered from all possible philosophical angles, containing many different notions ofselves and persons.

We invite abstracts (max. 300 words) for papers to be presented (20 minutes) during parallel sessions. Abstracts due: February 1st, 2014. Send abstracts as email attachments Please make sure your submission is ready to be reviewed blindly (do not include name and personal information in document).

We have a modest budget available to support foreign students in their (travelling) expenses. Please notify us if you anticipate requiring compensation. Students presenting their paper will be granted free admittance on the day of their presentation, and will be able to purchase a ticket for the other day at a reduction of 50%. Tickets will go on sale on January 1st. For more information regarding ticket prices and sale, have a look at the relevant page on our website. After the submission deadline, you will receive feedback regarding your abstract within two weeks, as well as further information regarding the conference, accommodation etc. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are lookingforward to your submissions, and we very much hope to welcome you on April 24th and 25th.
