Workshop Information

The 7th Annual Workshop

The 7th annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will take place in Syracuse, NY, August 21-3, 2019.

Keynote speakers will be:

  • Kwame Anthony Appiah, NYU
  • David Estlund, Brown
  • Sally Haslanger, MIT

UPDATE: WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS. See submission guidlines below

We are now inviting submissions of full papers of between 7500 and 12000 words, including footnotes, to fill the remaining slots for the conference. Submitted papers will need to be fully anonymized.  Up to two papers by the same author will be considered, as long as the author is not the sole author of both papers. Thus one person may submit two papers, but only if they are co-authors of at least one of the two. Submissions are due by March 31th, 2019. Papers will need to be submitted to Shauna Garland at Papers cannot be submitted via this web page but most be e-mailed to the above address.

We anticipate informing submitters if their papers are accepted for the conference by June 20th, 2019. Submission is taken to imply that the submitter will present the paper at the Workshop if it is accepted, and that the paper will be submitted to the resulting volume of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy. Papers accepted for the Workshop are given serious consideration for inclusion in the resulting volume but will be refereed and are not assured publication.

One of the papers presented at the workshop will be awarded the Marc Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy. The Prize includes a financial award of $10,000. The Marc Sanders Prize is a biennial essay competition open to scholars who, at the time of the submission deadline, are within fifteen (15) years of receiving a Ph.D. or are 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, c/o David Sobel ( To learn more: The Marc Sanders Foundation. If you are eligible for the Marc Sanders Prize please indicate this prominently on the first page of your paper submission.

Registration to attend the workshop will be free and open to the public, but required for attendance. It is not yet possible to register for the conference but will become possible in March. One will eventually be able to register via this web page.
