Southwest Seminar in Continental Philosophy

Continental Philosophy in the Alpine Desert

The 2nd annual Southwest Seminar in Continental Philosophy will be held on May 28-30, 2011: two full days, Saturday and Sunday, plus a closing session on Monday morning.

Keynote speakers will be Mark Wrathall of the University of California, Riverside; and Leora Batnitzky of Princeton University.  They will be speaking on themes related to the work of Heidegger and Rosenzweig, respectively.

The 2011 SWSCP will be held in Denver, Colorado, and will be jointly sponsored by the philosophy departments of the University of Denver and Colorado College.  In the spirit of the 2010 SWSCP,  which was hosted by Iain Thomson at the University of New Mexico, we hope to continue building a regional community of participants.  All who are interested (faculty members or graduate students) are invited to submit papers of 4000 words or less, prepared for blind review, by March 15, 2011.  Those who do not present papers but who still wish to attend could have the opportunity to be involved as Session Chairs.

For more information, or to submit a paper, please contact either Rick A. Furtak of CC (rfurtak@coloradocollege.edu) or Sarah Pessin of DU (spessin@du.edu).
