AMINTAPHIL Early Career Scholar Prizes for IVR 2015

The American Section of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (AMINTAPHIL) will award prizes to four early career scholars who submit the best papers for the World Congress of the International Society for the Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (IVR), to be held in Washington, D.C., from 27 July to 1 August 1 in 2015. The writer of each winning paper will receive a $750 cash award. For the purpose of this prize competition, an ‘early career scholar’ includes any scholar who doesn't currently (in AY 2014/15) hold a tenured position.

Those who wish to apply for the prize should submit a paper, prepared for anonymous review, of no more than 5500 words along with an abstract of no more than 400 words to the Executive Director, Ann Cudd. Applicants should also submit their 400 word abstracts to the IVR program committee: Applicants must be members of AMINTAPHIL to be eligible for the award. Membership rates currently begin at $30, for a two-year term. You may join AMINTAHIL here.

The theme for the 2015 IVR World Congress is "Law, Reason, and Emotion." While any paper within social and legal philosophy will be considered for the award, papers that fall within the conference theme will be given special attention.

The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2015. Winners will be notified before March 31, 2015. Awards will be distributed at the IVR meeting.
