10th Annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy

The 10th annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will take place in Tucson, AZ on Oct. 20-22, 2022. Submissions are due by Aug. 1, 2022. The workshop is planned to be held entirely in person unless the situation requires moving to an in-person/Zoom hybrid.

A selection of papers from the Workshop will be published in volume 10 of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy.

Submission Details:

Papers should be submitted on the Workshop webpage—go to “Conference Info” and select “Paper Submissions.” Submission is taken to imply that (1) if accepted for the workshop, the submitter will present the paper at the Workshop, submit it to the resulting volume of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, and not submit it elsewhere before a decision is made, and (2) if accepted for the volume, the submitter agrees to have it published in that volume and not to publish it elsewhere prior to the publication of the volume. Please note that papers accepted for the Workshop are given serious consideration for inclusion in the resulting volume but will be refereed and are not assured publication.

Submissions must be full papers of between 7500 and 12000 words, including footnotes.  An abstract of 800 words or less should be included.  Papers and abstracts should be fully anonymized.

One submission per author. A second submission of a co-authored paper is allowed.

Papers presented at the workshop from eligible candidates will be considered for the Marc Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy.  The Prize is awarded every other year and includes a financial award of $5,000.  To be eligible for the Prize scholars, at the time of the submission deadline, must be within fifteen (15) years of receiving a Ph.D. or be 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.  If you are eligible for the Marc Sanders Prize, and wish to be considered for it, please indicate this prominently on the first page of your paper submission.
