Call for Papers: 5th Göttingen / Chicago Graduate Conference

We warmly invite graduate students from the University of Chicago to submit a paper on any theme, topic or figure in philosophy, for the 5th Göttingen / Chicago Graduate Workshop. The conference will take place on 20th-22nd July 2023, and will be hosted by the University of Göttingen.

Half of the presentations will be from graduate students and recent PhDs from the Philosophy Department of the University of Chicago and other half from graduate students and recent PhDs from the Philosophy Departments of the Universities of Göttingen, Leipzig and Potsdam. Faculty members from these departments will participate as moderators and discussants. The papers will be pre-circulated so as to allow for maximally in-depth discussion.

The conference is an excellent opportunity for expanding your philosophical network, receiving constructive feedback on your work, and getting to know some of the students and faculty at both ends of the cooperative network between the Philosophy Departments at UChicago and the three departments in Germany with which it cooperates most intensively in Germany. Graduate students at all stages of their graduate career, as well as young researchers and post-doctoral fellows, who have recently defended their dissertations, are encouraged to submit papers.

Please submit your paper to Kaidi Pan (pankaidi@uchicago.edu) by midnight June 1st, 2023. In the subject field, please include the words ‘Göttingen Graduate Conference’. Submissions will be evaluated by a committee of faculty members of the participating departments. Students and other potential presenters from Chicago, Leipzig or Potsdam who have any questions about this should contact Prof. Conant. Those at Göttingen should contact Prof. Steinfath.

The Chicago Center for German Philosophy will cover the trans-Atlantic travel costs and the Department at Göttingen will cover accommodation and local transportation costs for students and faculty participating in the conference.
