The Moral and Political Philosophy at the Border Conference aims to highlight philosophical research in moral, social, and political philosophy . We welcome work in any area of moral and political philosophy since one aim of this conference is to enrich the dialogue at the border about issues in these areas. We especially encourage work relevant to philosophical issues about the border such as immigration and human rights.

We invite submissions from undergraduate students for poster presentations and from graduate students and faculty for paper presentations. We plan to allocate a certain number of sessions for presentation in Spanish, and we will consider submissions in either English or Spanish.

Interested applicants should send an abstract of no more than 1,000 words (300 words for undergraduate poster submissions) prepared for blind review to: no later than December 15, 2018. Full papers should be suitable for a 30 minute presentation. Applicants can expect to receive notification of acceptance by the end of January.

We anticipate the ability to provide modest scholarships to student presenters who will be traveling from low GDP countries, with the aim of helping to offset travel expenses. If you qualify for such a scholarship, and you would like to apply, please indicate this in your initial email.

This event is made possible through generous support from Hypatia, the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies at UTEP, and the Humanities Program at UTEP.
