Call for Papers 2018

eptic-tcep logo redFounded in 2003, the Society for Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture (EPTC) is a Canada-based international academic society that aims to promote rigorous scholarship drawn from the traditions of existentialism and phenomenology, broadly construed. In addition to theoretical work on core philosophical issues and figures, we are especially interested in providing a forum for showcasing practical and applied research, as well as cross- and interdisciplinary developments of existential and phenomenological themes.

Interested authors should submit the following electronically in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format:

  1. A copy of your paper, not more than 4500 words, and prepared for anonymous review (identifiable by paper title only)
  2. A separate abstract, not more than 100 words, also listing the paper’s title, author’s name, complete mailing address, institutional affiliation, and e-mail address

To ensure high standards of scholarship, all submissions are subject to double-blind review. Accepted authors will have thirty minutes to present their paper, followed by a ten-minute commentary and a twenty-minute discussion period.

If you are interested in either presenting a commentary (of not more than 1000 words) on a paper, or chairing a session, please submit a brief e-mail note indicating as much, including your name, complete mailing address, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and relevant areas of interest.

EPTC is able to waive registration fees for a few delegates each year. Such awards will be made according to criteria of financial need and quality of paper at the discretion of the conference program coordinator. Non-tenure-stream delegates interested in this award should append a note indicating as much to their submission materials.

The submission deadline for the above materials is January 7, 2018. Submissions should be sent to:
