We cordially invite undergraduate students – particularly from the Western/Central Pennsylvania region – 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).
The deadline for proposals has been extended to February 19, 2007. Those who are accepted must submit a full paper by March 5, 2007.
Proposals and final papers should be sent via e-mail attachment to Dr. Arthur Remillard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the conclusion of the conference, a panel of judges will award the top three papers with $150, $100, and $50 respectively.
This conference is free and open to the public. For more information on directions, contacts, scheduling, the featured speakers, etc., please visit our website: http://www.cermusa.francis.edu/csd/Conference.htm.
