CFP: North American Undergraduate Conference in Religion and Philosophy

Friday and Saturday, March 25-26, 2011
Saint Francis University
Loretto, Pennsylvania 15940

We cordially invite undergraduates to submit proposals for the fifth
annual North American Undergraduate Conference in Religion and
Philosophy. Submissions are encouraged from students majoring in all
academic fields.

Although any paper related to religion and philosophy will be
considered, priority will be given to those addressing this year's
theme, "Race in America." As philosopher Cornel West asserted, "A
fully functional multiracial society cannot be achieved without a
sense of history and open, honest dialogue." Accordingly, this year's
conference will forthrightly address philosophical and religious
questions of race and how these questions relate to politics, culture,
society, and history. To begin our conversation, this year's keynote
speaker will be George Yancy, Associate Professor of Philosophy at
Duquesne University and author of Black Bodies, White Gazes: The
Continuing Significance of Race.

of the presentation. The deadline for proposals is February 18, 2011.
Please include your full name, paper title, institution, e-mail, phone
number, and the name and contact information of your major professor.
Presenters must submit their full paper by March 11, 2011 to be
considered for conference prizes. Proposals and final papers should be
sent via e-mail attachment to Dr. Arthur Remillard at

led discussion to follow. All student presentations will be given on
Saturday from approximately 9:00am-5:00pm. This conference is open to
