CFP: Midwest Pragmatist Study Group

of The Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy

Fourteenth Annual Meeting
Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)
Indianapolis, Indiana USA
22–23 September 2012
Saturday Afternoon and Sunday Morning


The Midwest Pragmatist Study Group meets annually to promote interaction
among scholars and students interested in classical and contemporary
pragmatism broadly conceived. Papers on any aspect of pragmatist philosophy
are welcome.

The annual meetings do not have themes or special topics. However, each
year one session is devoted to analysis and discussion of a significant
text in American philosophy. This year's texts are "Racial Remediation: An
Historical Perspective on Current Conditions" (1976/1977), "Racial Realism"
(1992), and "The Space Traders" (1992) by Derrick Bell; and "Democracy is
Radical" (1937) and "Creative Democracy—The Task Before Us" (1939) by John

There is no registration fee or formal registration. Interested persons
from any field and students and faculty from any discipline are invited to
participate. The meetings are small and friendly, and the sessions
emphasize collegial conversation and helpful criticism.

Reading time for submitted papers should be around 30-45 minutes. Each
session runs 90 minutes leaving time for plenty of discussion. Works in
progress are particularly encouraged.

The Hans Seigfried Student Travel Fund will provide $50 to any student
presenting a paper. The fund honors the memory of Professor Seigfried by
encouraging new participants in the study group he founded. If you are a
student, please indicate that in a message accompanying your submission.

Please submit a draft or a complete paper, suitable for blind review, as an
e-mail attachment (MS Word .doc or Adobe .pdf files are preferred) to the
chair of the local arrangements committee for forwarding to the program
