For 25 years, the Society for Philosophy in the Contemporary World has met to share & discuss questions in a friendly, engaging environment. This year, we meet in Portland, Oregon to explore the topic of "Freedom and Society.
We welcome papers on all topics, from any and all philosophical traditions. SPCW is especially interested in, and invites contributions by those from historically underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds, as well as anyone working to expand the scope and quality of philosophical discourses beyond the conventional canon. Hence, in addition to established philosophers, we welcome the fellowship of graduate students, nontraditional philosophers, and persons with other non-philosophical specializations. We aim to provide the atmosphere for a genuinely positive and supportive exchange of views.
