Call for Papers: “God, Socrates, and Stuff” A Philosophy and Religious Studies Conference for Undergraduates.

March 24, 2007 – 9am – 6pm, Saint Francis University, John F. Kennedy Student Center, Loretto, Pennsylvania 15940

This event is open to the public and free for presenters and non-presenters.

We cordially invite undergraduate students to submit proposals on matters pertaining to philosophy and/or religious studies. Submissions are encouraged from students majoring in all academic fields to include (but not limited to), religion, philosophy, sociology, psychology, history, literature, the fine arts, and political science. Conference organizers will be particularly interested in papers that tend toward engaging a general audience.

Each presenter will have approximately 15-20 minutes to deliver his or her paper. Panels will conclude with faculty responses, and open question and answer sessions.

Paper proposals (roughly 250 words) should give a brief but concise outline of the presentation. Please include your full name, paper title, institution, e-mail, phone number, and the name and contact information of your major professor. Also indicate whether the presentation will require technical support (i.e. PowerPoint).

At the conclusion of the conference, a panel of judges will award the top three papers with $150, $100, and $50, respectively.

The deadline for proposals has been extended to February 19, 2007. Those who are accepted must submit the full paper by March 5, 2007. Proposals and final papers should be sent via email attachment to Dr. Arthur Remillard at [email protected] For more information, please visit the website: http://www.cermusa.francis.edu/csd/Conference.htm
