This is the final reminder about the December 1 submission deadline.

We are pleased to announce that the Fourth Annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will take place on June 1-3, 2016 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.

There will be nine papers at this year’s conference, including four invited papers by the following people:

• Alex Voorhoeve (London School of Economics), Ralf Bader (Oxford), Adam Swift (Warwick) and Zofia Stemplowska (Oxford), Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen (Aarhus University)

We are issuing a call for papers to fill the remaining five conference slots. Submitted papers should be between 7,500 and 12,000 words including footnotes, should be totally anonymized, and are due by Dec. 1. (The workshop is being held three months earlier than usual, and hence the deadline is three months earlier.) Accepted papers for the conference will receive serious consideration for inclusion in the resulting Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy volume.

One of the submission (non-invited) slots will go to the paper selected as the 2016 contender (to compete with the 2017 contender) for the 2016-2017 (biennial) Marc Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy. The Marc Sanders Prize is a biennial essay competition open to scholars who, at the time of the submission deadline, are within fifteen (15) years of receiving a Ph.D. or are students currently enrolled in a graduate program. Independent scholars may also be eligible and should direct inquiries to the Editors of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, c/o Peter Vallentyne ( (We have requested special funds for a 2016 Marc Sanders prize. If we receive them, the 2016 contender will win that prize. We should know by Dec. 1. or so.) To learn more: The Marc Sanders Foundation
