Tempe, Arizona

Keynote speaker: Margaret Walker (Marquette)



The theme of the 2013 PSWIP meeting is:


Sustaining and What Sustains


We invite papers that think broadly about the theme of sustaining and what sustains. When we think of what needs to be sustained, we might think of the environment, communities, cultures, friendships, family, self-esteem, trust, the humanities, human and animal welfare, and ourselves as knowers and cultural producers. In light of what humanly created or natural threats does the need to be sustained arise? In sustaining what matters, what ways of relating, activities, attitudes, and socio-political principles and structures are important? What is it that sustains us as individuals and collectively, bodily, epistemically, culturally, aesthetically, and spiritually?


Papers do not need to address the theme in order to be considered. We invite work from all areas of philosophy and all ways of doing philosophy. We are a friendly group and promise good conversation and lively debate.


In order to make our conference affordable we do not charge a registration fee. Some refreshments/food will be provided. Small travel stipends are available for graduate students and un/underemployed philosophers. Please let us know with your submission if you would like to be considered for one of these.


Deadline for submission: July 1, 2013

Please send your ~3,000 word paper suitable for a 30 minute presentation to:

Nellie Wieland

Executive Secretary, PSWIP
