The Uehiro Graduate Student Philosophy Conference showcases exceptional work by graduate and advanced undergraduate students in all fields of philosophy. The theme of the 2018 edition is “Persons and Selves.” It aims to explore how the metaphysics and ethics of personhood, self and identity are understood across cultural contexts. This subject includes, but is not limited to, conceptions and taxonomies of personal identity, self-knowledge, subjectivity, the metaphysics and formation of the self, comparative and cross-disciplinary perspectives on personhood, ethical issues in personhood, distinctions between individuality and community, and the relevance and value of identity in the contemporary world. There are, of course, many other worthwhile topics and any other relevant viewpoints are welcome. 

Email abstracts and full papers to Uehiropc@hawaii.edu. Papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation. In the body of the email include: 1) Your name, 2) Title of the paper, 3) Institutional affiliation, 4) Contact information (email, phone number, mailing address), and 5) Whether you would like to be considered for a travel award. Send documents in word format with no identifying information for blind review. Priority will be given to complete papers. Notification of acceptance will be sent by January 1st 2018. All submissions will be considered for possible publication in the Uehiro Conference Proceedings, published in the past by Cambridge Scholars Press.
