9-11 MARCH 2012 / University of Nebraska, Lincoln


We are now organizing the thirteenth annual working conference on topics in philosophy of the social sciences. The 2012 Roundtable will continue a tradition of meetings that brings together philosophers and social scientists to discuss a wide range of philosophical issues raised in and by social research. This year the Roundtable will be hosted by David Henderson, at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.

Abstracts on any topic in philosophy of the social sciences or in the philosophy of social phenomena are welcome. We especially welcome papers that tackle philosophical issues as they arise in, and are consequential for, practicing social scientists.

Keynote Speaker: Robert Boyd, Department of Anthropology, UCLA

We will assemble a two-day program of papers to be presented in workshop format so that intensive discussion can be the focus of the meeting.  We choose papers with the aim of ensuring a broad mix of topics and of presenters from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. We particularly welcome contributions from junior colleagues and colleagues new to the area. In this spirit, we have established an alternate year policy for regular participants; we give preference to new contributors over those who presented papers at the previous year’s Roundtable. Selected papers from the Roundtable will be published in an annual special issue of Philosophy of the Social Sciences (see any March issue of Philosophy of the Social Sciences from 2000 onward for papers from prior Roundtables). 

Send a ONE-PAGE ABSTRACT to any member of the program committee (listed below) by DECEMBER 15, 2011. The sponsors of the Roundtable are able to provide a 700 USD grant to two young scholars from abroad, in order to help them pay their travel expenses. If you wish to be considered for this grant, please indicate so when you submit your abstract.

If you would like to be on a distribution list for email notices, send a note to this effect to James Bohman at the address below. Check the Roundtable website for news and updates:
