We are planning our SECOND stand-alone PPE Society Meeting for March 15-17 2018 in New Orleans.  With that event in mind we are now doing a CALL FOR PROPOSALS and SUBMISSIONS. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2017.  

We mean this call to be open-ended, with the guiding aim just being sessions that serve well the mission of the PPE Society: to encourage the interaction and cross-fertilization of three intellectual disciplines that are, in their history, deeply intertwined and that now, and going forward, have much to offer one another.

  • Session Proposals: if you have ideas for sessions that you would like to organize, please write up the proposal, with a justification articulating its relevance to PPE, and submit it using the form below.  This can be sessions focusing on a new book or book manuscript in an author meets critic format, or a set of shortish papers on a common theme, or a paper by someone from one discipline with comments by people from others, or…  We ask that the proposal be for three presenters in total, plus a session chair.  We will be giving priority to session proposals over individual papers, but…
  • Paper Submissions: if you have a paper you would like to present, please write up an abstract, making sure that it is anonymized, and submit it using the form below. The plan for these is to have three speakers per session give presentations, with discussion to follow ( without commentators).

The sessions will each be an hour and fifty minutes, leaving each of the three presenters 20-25 minutes maximum to present, with the remaining time for questions from the audience.

Although the deadline for proposals and submissions is August 1, 2017, if you have an idea for a session or a talk before then, letting us know what it is ASAP would be tremendously helpful in our planning for this event.  We will give priority to earlier proposals.

Please consider colluding with friends to give papers or offer a session at this conference, with the idea of coming to New Orleans to meet engaging people, grapple with interesting work, and help forge a community among people interested in PPE.  Well, “colluding” might not be quite the right word, but you get the idea…
