The Graduate Philosophy Club at Virginia Tech, together with the Minorities And Philosophy chapter at VT, is pleased to annouce the 15th Annual Virginia Tech Graduate Conference in Philosophy. Our topic this year is Philosophy of Race, Gender, and Social Groups, broadly construed. 

We are accepting papers for presentation at Virginia Tech's 15th annual graduate student conference in philosophy. We invite current graduate students to submit papers that philosophically engage with topics concerning social groups and social phenomena, broadly construed. Submissions may be from any philosophical sub-field, and may address, e.g. metaphysical, epistemic, moral, or political issues concerning social phenomena, as well as questions regarding social phenomena in areas such as philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, or aesthetics. Suggested social groups and phenomena of interest may include but are not limited to the following:

  • gender, sex, gender identity 
  • race, racial identity
  • disability
  • health, well-being, and the body
  • sexuality, sexual orientation
  • class, poverty, privilege
  • immigration, illegalization, citizenship
  • colonialism, decolonization
