Posted by: Erin Shepherd
The American Association of Philosophy
Teachers (AAPT) and the American Philosophical Association (APA) Committee on Inclusiveness
in the Profession seek proposals for 25-minute presentations to be included in
two complementary joint panels to be held at the 2015 APA Central Division
meeting, which will occur February 18–21 at the Hilton St. Louis at the
Ballpark in St. Louis, Missouri.
The sessions, "Inclusive Philosophy
Pedagogy: What Is It and How Do We Achieve It?,” are intended both to theorize
(and perhaps problematize) the very notion of inclusive philosophy pedagogy and
to provide audience members with tools and resources to help them make their
own philosophy pedagogy more inclusive. Thus, both theoretical and practical
approaches to the theme are warmly welcomed.
Please send a 300-word abstract of your
proposed presentation in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format to Shannon Dea ([email protected]) no later than September
15, 2014. Please prepare your submission for anonymous review, including
removing any identifying information from the document properties. You may
indicate your name, affiliation, and contact information in the main body of the
email accompanying your submission.
AAPT and the APA inclusiveness committee are eager to assemble a
demographically diverse panel. If you are a member of an underrepresented group
and wish to identify yourself as such, please include this information in your
email as well.
Authors can expect to receive a decision in
early October 2014.
Please direct any questions about these
panels to Shannon Dea.
All the best,
Chair, APA Committee on Inclusiveness in the Profession
