HCC Philosophy Conference 2021

Fifth Annual Philosophy Conference - Philosophy, Humanities and Library Sciences Division





HCC Symposium:  

Philosophy and Humanities Conference and Workshop 


April 3, 2021 


Submission deadline: February 1, 2021 

About: HCC Symposium invites papers on all topics in philosophy and humanities for a workshop-style conference. All accepted papers will be assigned 2 readers who will facilitate discussion and workshopping. Accepted presenters are expected to also participate in the conference as readers. During the conference, each presenter will give a brief 10-15 minute (not simply read) synopsis of their paper; this will allow for a longer discussion and workshop facilitated by the readers. These discussions will also be open to members of the public as per a normal conference format. We hope this structure will encourage the more substantive discussions that are possible in a workshop, with the greater organization that is had with a conference. Papers will thus receive detailed feedback as part of a fruitful conversation.  


WHERE: In reference to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the HCC Symposium will be fully online.  Details will follow
