Basic Knowledge Workshop: Call For Graduate Papers

I'm organizing an Arché workshop on Basic Knowledge, which will take place on 24-25 November 2006. Speakers will include Jason Stanley, Duncan Pritchard, Jessica Brown and Timothy Williamson. There will be a slot for a graduate student paper. Graduate students, and those who obtained their PhDs within the last twelve months, are invited to submit papers of not more than 5000 words. Please send me submissions as email attachments in Word or similar format (no pdf files please). Suitable topics include: Sceptical Paradox, Transmission and/or Closure, Non-Evidential Warrant, Internalism and Externalism, and A Priori Knowledge. Particularly welcome are papers which open up new areas of enquiry within these fields, and/or highlight directions in which further research is needed. Travel and subsistence will be covered by Arche for the author of the selected paper. The deadline for submissions is 31 August 2006.

ADDENDUM: Submissions should be prepared for blind review.

Carrie, I take it the submissions should be suitable for blind review? You didn't say in the post.

Doh - yes, thanks for noticing that!

Carrie,
I had a question about the interpretation of 'last 12 months'. I don't mean to be difficult but does that mean you are eligible if you received a degree between November of 2005 and November of 2006 or a degree within 12 months of the call for papers? There will likely be a few of us that received degrees in May and August of 2005 that are eligible under one reading but not the other.

I'm happy to allow the more inclusive reading!

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
