Call for Abstracts

Philosophy in the Wild invites abstract submissions for presentations at our inaugural workshop, the theme of which is environmental philosophy, very broadly construed.* This event is an outdoor, technology-free event.

From July 16th to 18th, 2021, participants will camp at Poe Paddy State Park in central Pennsylvania. Activities will include (though will not be limited to) keynote presentations, participant presentations/discussions, and hiking (optional). No prior camping experience is necessary; Philosophy in the Wild can work with participants to help arrange gear rentals.

This event is wheelchair accessible, although the campsite grounds include gravel. 

The event will follow the relevant local directives regarding Covid-19, and plans will be adjusted as needed.
