We are issuing a call for papers to fill the remaining three conference slots. Submitted papers (we will not be accepting abstracts as submissions) should not exceed 10,000 words, should be totally anonymized, and are due by March 15th. We anticipate decisions being made on submissions by May 15th. Accepted papers for the conference will receive serious consideration for inclusion in the resulting volume. At least one paper from a recent Ph.D. will be accepted for the conference. Recent Ph.D.’s are here understood as scholars who, as of March 15th, 2015, are within fifteen (15) years of receiving a Ph.D. or are currently enrolled in a graduate program. Please note when submitting your paper if you are eligible for consideration as a recent Ph.D. Independent scholars may also be eligible and should direct inquiries to the Editors of the Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, care of David Sobel at davidsobel3@gmail.com
