    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: by February 1, 2019.

    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: Chairs and discussants must have a Ph.D.


    Pre-circulation requirement: 

    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 ( and Neil Roberts ( If you have any difficulties submitting a proposal, please contact APT at

    Open Theology invites submissions for the topical issue “Phenomenology in Dialogue" see more


    for a topical issue of Open Theology



    (second call)


    Edited by:

    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” ( 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 (<>).

     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 . Authors who would like to apply for discounts or waivers are asked to contact Managing Editor of the journal Dr. Katarzyna Tempczyk (<>) before submission of their articles.



     Submissions will be collected till April 15, 2019, via the on-line submission system at:

     Choose as article type: “Topical Issue Article: Phenomenology in Dialogue”.

     Before submission the authors should carefully read over the Instruction for Authors, available at:

     All contributions will undergo critical peer-review before being accepted for publication.

     Further questions about this thematic issue can be addressed to Olga Louchakova-Schwartz at<>. In case of technical or financial questions, please contact journal Managing Editor Katarzyna Tempczyk at<>.

    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:

    Our conference theme is “Feminism and Food.” This conference asks participants to consider how food, as a topic worthy of philosophical investigation, is related to feminist challenges to traditional discourse. How has food been discussed in the history of philosophy, or overlooked? How has feminist philosophical scholarship taken into account issues including the ethics and politics of food production, availability, and consumption? What counts as food, and how are metaphysical claims regarding the nature of food related to our attitudes to animals, to climate, and to cultural geographies?


    Topics may include but are not limited to the following:

    Food in the Anthropocene 

    Indigenous Food

    Le thème de notre conférence porte sur le féminisme et l’alimentation. Nous demandons aux participantes et participants de considérer comment l’alimentation, comme sujet de recherche philosophique, est reliée aux contestations féministes du discours traditionnel.

Comment les recherches féministes prennent-elles en compte l’éthique et la politique de la production, la disponibilité et la consommation des denrées alimentaires? Qu’est-ce qui compte comme de la nourriture? Comment les thèses métaphysiques concernant la nourriture sont-elles reliées à nos attitudes envers les animaux, le climat, et les géographies culturelles?


    Les sujets abordés peuvent inclure entre autres:


    Les théories féministes du handicap et la justice alimentaire

    Alimentation et anthropocène

    Alimentation autochtone

    Justice alimentaire anticoloniale

    La chasse et/ou/versus l’agriculture

    Manger éthiquement

    La cuisine féministe


    La culture des régimes

    Call for Papers 2019

    Le français suit.

    Founded in 2003, the Society for Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture (EPTC) is a Canadian-based international academic society that aims to promote rigorous scholarship drawn from the traditions of existentialism and phenomenology, broadly construed. In addition to theoretical work on core philosophical issues and figures, we are especially interested in providing a forum for showcasing practical and applied research, as well as cross and interdisciplinary developments of existential and phenomenological themes.

    Our 2019 meeting will be held in the first week of June at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, in conjunction with the annual Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Social Sciences and Humanities.

    Interested authors should submit the following electronically in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format:

    1. A copy of your paper, not more than 4000 words, and prepared for anonymous review (identifiable by paper title only), and

    2. A separate abstract, not more than 100 words, listing the paper’s title, author’s name, complete mailing address, institutional affiliation, and email address


    To ensure high standards of scholarship, all submissions are subject to a double-blind review process. Accepted authors will have thirty minutes to present their paper, followed by a ten-minute commentary and a twenty-minute discussion period.

    While we strongly prefer complete papers, we will also consider long abstracts (7501000 words, plus bibliography). Please prepare this for anonymous review, and submit along with a separate cover sheet listing the title, author’s name, address, etc. Please also include a short CV, and note that if accepted, complete papers will be due by April 1.

    If you are interested in either presenting a commentary (of not more than 1000 words) on a paper, or chairing a session, please submit a brief email note to this effect, including your name, complete mailing address, institutional affiliation, email address, and relevant areas of interest.

    EPTC is able to waive registration fees for a few participants each year. Such awards will be made according to criteria of financial need and quality of paper at the discretion of the conference program coordinator. Non-tenure-stream participants interested in this award should include a note to this effect in their submission materials.

    The submission deadline for the above materials is January 7, 2019. Submissions should be sent to:
