Second Annual Stephen L. Weber Graduate Conference in Ethics

San Diego State University’s Philosophy Department and the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs are pleased to announce the Second Annual Stephen L. Weber Graduate Conference in Ethics.  The specific focus of this year’s conference will be Pre-College Philosophy.


Jana Mohr Lone, University of Washington
Founder and Director of Northwest Center for Philosophy for Children

Mitchell S. Green, University of Virginia
Founder and Director of Project High-Phi

Possible questions addressed:

Do philosophers have a duty to help the movement succeed? How important and feasible is it to create entirely new, philosophically-based K-12 schools? If we build new schools, on what principles ought these schools be based? What role should graduate students have within the emerging pre-college philosophy movement? What values are implicit or explicit in the K-12 philosophy classroom and/or school?

Paper submissions:

Please prepare your paper of no more than 4,000 words for blind review and submit electronically, along with a 150 word abstract and cover letter including name, title and institutional affiliation to sdsuphilconference@gmail.com by December 1st. Eight paper submissions from graduate students will be selected. Applicants will be notified of decisions by mid-January. Each student will present a paper and provide commentary for another presentation.

Roundtable topic submissions and registration:

Please submit roundtable topic suggestions to sdsuphilconference at gmail.com by December 1st so that we can try to accommodate your interests in the conference.  We hope that this conference will contribute to the pre-college philosophy movement on both a theoretical and a practical level. Registration instructions will be publicized in February. We look forward to having you here with us in San Diego!
