      * 1st CALL FOR GRADUATE STUDENT ABSTRACTS *

      * CONFERENCE: 'CONCEPTUAL CONTENT - HISTORY AND PROSPECTS' *

      * Please distribute widely. Apologies for cross-posting *

      Conference date: 20-21st Sept. 2011
      Conference location: University of Cambridge, U.K.
      Abstract submission deadline: Midnight 15th April 2011


      Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts of between 250 - 500
      words for a major conference on conceptual and non-conceptual content. The
      conference aims, in particular, to bring together scholars working on the
      history of this topic with those engaged in the ongoing contemporary
      debate. We intend to construe the theme broadly, so as to include, but by
      no means to be limited to, issues such as: the connection between
      perception and judgment/inference, the relationship between the
      non-conceptual and the spatial/temporal, the significance of indexicals
      within the debate, the relevance of animal experience, the role of
      imagination and images, the status of the
      subconscious/subpersonal/unconscious, and the question of the 'given'.
      Proposals are sought EITHER on these and related topics OR on their history
      OR on both. With respect to historical proposals, we envisage that speakers
      would include, but again by no means be limited to, those with expertise in
      British Empiricism, in Kant, in German Idealism, in Phenomenology and in
      Analytic Philosophy.


      Submitted abstracts, suitable for presentation within 25 minutes, should be
      sent in .doc or .pdf format to conceptualism2011@.... The file should
      include: (i) a title page giving name, affiliation and contact details; and
      (ii) an abstract formatted for blind review. Accommodation will be provided
      and registration costs covered for all graduate speakers but,
      unfortunately, we cannot cover their travel costs.

      The current invited speaker list is as follows.

      Prof. Lucy Allais (Sussex/Wits)
      Prof. Alex Byrne (MIT)
      Prof. Tim Crane (Cambridge)
      Dr. Fiona Macpherson (Glasgow)
