The North American Nietzsche Society will hold its fourth international conference in Providence on October 7-8, 2022 at Brown University. Sessions will be 90 minutes, with approximately 40 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion. Keynote speakers are TBD.
Submission of abstracts:
Detailed abstracts on any aspect of Nietzsche’s philosophy should be prepared for blind review and sent by April 1st, 2022.
Send 750-1,500 word abstracts as a PDF file to: nietzschesociety2022 AT gmail.com. In the body of your email, include (i) your paper title, (ii) name, (iii) institutional affiliation, and (iv) contact information. The abstract itself should contain no identifying information, including in the file’s meta-data.
The program committee will evaluate submissions and prepare a program of roughly six presentations. The initial review of abstracts will be blind, although at the final stage the program committee may take into consideration the overall diversity of the program and its presenters. Papers presented at the conference will presumptively be published in a special issue of The Journal of Nietzsche Studies.
Graduate student prize: We will reserve one spot for the best abstract submitted by a graduate student (though additional graduate student abstracts may be chosen via blind review). We will cover all travel expenses for the winner of this prize. If you wish to be considered for this prize, indicate that you are a graduate student in the body of your email.
