The College at Brockport Annual Philosophy Conference
April 22-23, 2011
Open to undergraduate and graduate level students


Keynote Speaker
Bill Ayers

Bill Ayers was a center of controversy in the 2008 presidential race manufactured by the Clinton campaign and accelerated by Sarah Palin (he was the so-called terrorist that Barack Obama was fraternizing with) because of his relationship with the future president and his history as a founding member of the Weather Underground, a group that actively protested the Vietnam War and government attacks on the Black Freedom Movement by building a revolutionary organization that among its many campaigns and activities became best known for bombing government facilities in the 1960s and 1970s. Bill Ayers is now a Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago (retired). As an educational theorist and activist, he has published numerous books and articles, and lectured extensively about social justice, democracy and education, the cultural contexts of schooling, and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political activity. He will be discussing “Where Do We Go From Here? Barbarism or Community.”

Annual Philosophy Conference at The College at Brockport

The College at Brockport is pleased to announce the call for papers for its annual philosophy conference supported by the Brockport Philosophy Department and The Mind’s Eye: The Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of the College at Brockport. Our vision for this conference is to incorporate diverse philosophical interests, as well as engage undergraduates in areas that they might not have the opportunity to study formally at their respective institutions. The conference committee encourages submissions from all philosophical spectrums (e.g., analytic, continental, literary, political) focused on, for example, ethics, logic, philology, religion, psychoanalysis, rhetoric, etc. The conference format will be concurrent sessions of individual papers presented, panels, and media presentations. Papers should be edited within the given guidelines for conference submission as outlined below.

Encouraged Key Themes
Analytic Philosophy - Continental Philosophy - Literary Theory - Political Philosophy - Religion - Logic - Ethics - Moral Philosophy – Aesthetics – Marxism – Feminism – Philosophy of Science – Philosophy of Mind – Pragmatism – Eastern Philosophy – African Philosophy
