Neil Roberts (Williams College)
The Association for Political Theory (APT) invites proposals from faculty members, independent scholars, and ABD graduate students for its annual conference to be held October 24th-26th, 2019, at the campus of the University of California, Irvine. We will consider papers on all topics in political theory, political philosophy and their cognate disciplines, from scholars working in any field at any institution. We also encourage faculty members to volunteer to serve as chairs and/or discussants.
How to apply:
(1) Proposers must be members of the Association (membership is free). If you are not yet a member, please submit an application at: https://associationforpoliticaltheory.org/Member_Sign_Up by February 1, 2019.
(2) Abstracts of 300-400 words are due by midnight PST on Monday, February 4, 2019 at: https://associationforpoliticaltheory.org/Paper_Proposal_Form (you must log on to submit). Each member may submit one proposal and may be a co-author on one proposal submitted by someone else. The APT conference does not accept full panel or roundtable proposals.
Thursday Programming and applying for workshop panels:
This year the APT will extend some of its programming into Thursday by holding three to four workshop panels on that day. Workshops of this type were formerly held during the first session on Saturday. We realize that not everyone can attend the conference on Thursday but if you are interested in presenting your paper at a Thursday workshop panel, please indicate on your proposal form that you would like to be considered and that you are willing to fulfil the commitments it requires. Workshop panels will consist of three presenters and a chair; but instead of a traditional discussant, the panelists and pre-registered audience members will read all papers and prepare written comments for the presenters by the beginning of the conference. At the conference, participants will spend approximately 30 minutes workshopping each of the papers. We will designate these panels only after the PC has evaluated the proposals.
Additional Thursday programming will include other events such as the First Book Manuscript Workshop and a plenary roundtable featuring scholars from UC-Irvine and other institutions in California. A reception shall follow.
Chairs and Discussants:
If you are proposing a paper and wish to participate as a chair and/or discussant on another panel, please indicate your areas of expertise in the relevant box on the proposal form. If you are willing to participate as a chair and/or discussant without making a paper proposal, please fill out the form available at: https://associationforpoliticaltheory.org/C_D_Volunteer_Form. Chairs and discussants must have a Ph.D.
Presenters on Thursday workshop panels must submit their papers electronically to the paper archive on the APT website no later than September 27, 2019. All other presenters must submit their papers to the archive no later than October 4, 2019. The archive will be password-protected so that access is limited to members of APT. Presenters who do not meet these deadlines will not be able to propose a paper for the following year’s conference.
Questions and assistance:
For questions about the program or proposal guidelines, please contact one of the Program Committee Co-Chairs, Hagar Kotef (email@example.com) and Neil Roberts (Neil.Roberts@williams.edu). If you have any difficulties submitting a proposal, please contact APT at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Topoi Special Issue Adversariality in Argument
John Casey (Northeastern Illinois University)
Katharina Stevens (University of Lethbridge)
*Deadline for Submissions Extended to 1 June 2020*
While worries about adversariality in argument date back to Plato, more recent concerns about adversariality can be found in Janice Moulton’s (1983) identification of adversarial argument as a dominant paradigm in philosophy. Since the 80’s, there has been a growing body of work on argumentation, deliberation, and disagreement that confronts the dangers, limitations, and advantages of adversarial argumentation spanning various areas of research, such as argumentation theory, feminist theory, critical thinking research, deliberative democracy, and the cognitive science of reasoning. Contributions have produced a multitude of conceptions of adversariality, and strong arguments both for and against the importance of different forms of adversariality in argument. The concern with the role of adversariality has led to the development of cooperative theories of argumentation in critical thinking research. It has motivated ideas about how adversariality could be reduced or used for its positive effects as well as arguments about the moral obligations arguers have towards their interlocutors in argumentation theory. It stands in the center of feminist criticisms of contemporary argumentative practices. It has sparked debates about the design of deliberative publics in research on deliberative democracy. And it plays an important role in the argumentative theory of reasoning in cognitive science.
The renewed interest in adversariality is important and timely. In an increasingly polarized world and faced with a public debate that is often hostile and unproductive, it is necessary to develop a robust theory of adversariality and its place in argument. Yet, authors in the debate often seem to be lacking a common understanding of what adversariality means, or in what sense it is or is not important/essential/productive. This special issue aims to bring different perspectives on adversariality in argument together and thereby both invigorate and focus an already lively debate. We therefore invite contributions that engage with adversariality in argument from any area of philosophy in the hope for a diverse and informative issue.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Kinds of Adversariality; Is Adversariality Essential to Argument?; The Psychology of Argumentative Adversariality; Adversariality and the Cognitive Science of Reasoning; Adversariality in Political Deliberation; Adversariality in Deliberation Design, Argument-As-War Metaphor; Can Cooperative Argument Replace the Dominant Adversarial Model?; Argumentative Adversariality and Feminist Theory; Adversariality and Justice in Argument; Adversariality and Belief; History of the Problem of Adversariality; Adversariality Across Theories of Argumentation (Informal Logic, Pragma-Dialectics, Rhetoric, etc.); Adversariality and Disagreement; Adversariality and Polarization; Adversariality and Epistemology; Adversariality and Pedagogy; Critical Thinking and Adversarial Argumentation; The Ethics of Adversariality.
Invited contributors: Scott Aikin (Vanderbilt University), Catherine Hundleby (University of Windsor) and Moira Howes (Trent University), Andrew Aberdein (Florida Institute of Technology), Sharon Bailin and Mark Battersby (Simon Fraser University)
Instructions for Submission: All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. Submission is organized through TOPOI’s online editorial manager: https://www.editorialmanager.com/topo/default.aspx
Log in, click on “submit new manuscript” and select “Adversariality in argument” from the menu “article type”.
Please upload: 1) a manuscript prepared for double-blind peer-review and 2) a title page containing the title of the paper, name, affiliation and contact details of the author, word-count, abstract and key-words.
Papers should not exceed 8000 words (excluding notes).
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact: Katharina Stevens (Katharina.firstname.lastname@example.org) or John Casey (email@example.com)
The next 2019 issue (Volume 7, Number 2) will focus on the theme of Culture, War and Sovereignty. see more
Culture and Dialogue is an international peer reviewed print and electronic journal of cross-cultural philosophy and humanities. The Journal provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. For each issue, Culture and Dialogue seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator.
The next 2019 issue (Volume 7, Number 2) will focus on the theme of
Culture, War and Sovereignty:
“Culture, War and Sovereignty” can encompass a great many specifically philosophical themes and issues, and some ideas involving dialogical relationships include:
• Comparative philosophy of conflict resolution and reconciliation, which may analyse one or more particular non-Western perspectives and how they can engage the relevant fields of Western philosophy.
• Philosophical reflection on the range of approaches to war and sovereignty (analytic, interpretive, Western, Eastern etc.)
• Inquiry into the cultural dimension of conflicts.
• The role and significance of dialogue in conflict resolution and reconciliation.
• The nature of and justification for sovereignty claims across cultures.
• The essence of war and the question of sovereignty from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives.
We welcome essays that address any of these issues from different cultural perspectives or philosophical traditions.
Submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The CJMA welcomes proposals on the theme of "Maritain Engaging Contemporary Philosophy". see more
*CALL FOR PAPERS*
Canadian Jacques Maritain Association
Friday, November 1 and Saturday, Nov 2, 2019
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Theme: Maritain Engaging Contemporary Philosophy
2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of The Canadian Jacques Maritain Association. In 1979, a small group of philosophers, led by Jean Louis Allard, and including Léon Charette, Fr. Lawrence Dewan, Leslie Armour, and Fr Jacques Croteau, established the Association in order to keep alive the kinds of questions and issues discussed in Maritain’s work. Maritain had two dominant interests. One was the idea of a perennial philosophy. Maritain held that there was a continuity in philosophy – that important insights of the past could be retained without preventing philosophers from pursuing new ideas – and he himself sought to engage the philosophies of his time by drawing on this perennial philosophy that he saw represented in Thomas Aquinas.
To acknowledge and celebrate Maritain’s work this year, the CJMA will focus its annual symposium on the discussion of how Maritain’s philosophy, and the idea of a perennial philosophy in general, can engage issues and philosophies of the present time.
We invite papers/proposals, in English or French, relating to the conference theme. Selected papers will be published in Études maritainiennes-Maritain Studies. Papers outside the conference theme will also be considered.
Those who wish to present a paper should send a one-page abstract or proposal to:
Dr William Sweet
c/o Department of Philosophy, St Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, NS, B2G 2W5 Canada
Deadline for submission of proposals: August 30, 2019

PHENOMENOLOGY IN DIALOGUE: RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE, VISUALITY, AND THE LIFEWORLD
(PHENOMENOLOGY OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE III)
Martin Nitsche, Institute of Philosophy, Czech Academy of Sciences (Prague)
Olga Louchakova-Schwartz, Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley) and the Society for the Phenomenology of Religious Experience
“Open Theology” (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue “Phenomenology in Dialogue: Religious Experience, Visuality, and the Lifeworld”, prepared in collaboration with the Society for the Phenomenology of Religious Experience (www.sophere.org<http://www.sophere.org/>).
We invite submission of papers dedicated to the phenomenologically determined themes of imagination, image-consciousness, appearance and the non-apparent, phenomenological ontology, and genetic phenomenology, with regard to religious experience. We further invite innovative philosophical and theological reflections on image, imagination, and creativity in religious experiencing, as well as reflections on a reverse problem of how religious experience contributes to the above mentioned faculties examined in the psychological horizon. This topic can be further narrowed down to research of phenomenological visuality, or broadened by thematization of critical issues arising from research into religious experience, such as, but not limited to, first-person authority and the relationship between phenomenological and natural scientific horizons of inquiry: What are the spheres, regions, and horizons by which we can understand religious experience? How do traditional topics of phenomenological philosophy, such as the ego, subjectivity, embodiment, or intersubjectivity, relate to the study of visuality in religious experience? We invite these and other questions to be treated not only in the light of classical phenomenological scholarship, but also within other interpretive and critical approaches; we also welcome contributions from perspectives of theological phenomenology such as those connected with the work of Schleiermacher or Troeltsch, French phenomenology, and the Phenomenology of Life. Papers discussing the manifestations of visuality in various religious lifeworlds are also invited: does religious visuality manifest across various traditions and practices? The issue is open both to theoretical papers and papers with applied practical orientation, as along as the authors use phenomenological reflection in the treatment of their findings.
Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:
- transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,
– efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter Open’s e-technology
– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions,
– complementary membership in the Society for Phenomenology of Religious Experience.
Publication costs should be covered by so called Article Processing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors. To view funding opportunities to cover APC please visit https://www.degruyter.com/page/1097 .

HOW TO SUBMIT
Submissions will be collected till April 15, 2019, via the on-line submission system at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openth/

The paired speakers will receive each other’s papers in advance, and prepare a detailed commentary. Each paper will then get 1 hour: 30 minutes for the speaker’s talk, 10 minutes for the paired speaker’s commentary, and 20 minutes for discussion.
We invite papers in philosophy of mind and cognitive science, broadly understood. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Epistemology of perception
The role of language and metaphors in cognition
Social cognition and joint action
The problem of consciousness
Naturalization of intentionality
Animal cognition and comparative psychology
Funds have been requested and we hope to support participants in travelling to and staying in Bochum.
