Call for Papers by Graduate Students on Structural Injustice: deadline extended to October 15

June 28, 2023 3:04 PM | James Fleming (Administrator)

The Council of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy is pleased to announce a change in the format of our annual conferences—to include a Guest Student Scholar presentation—beginning with the 2024 conference on Structural Injustice. Please distribute the following call for papers to graduate students who may be interested:   


The American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy (ASPLP)—which has published the distinguished Nomos volumes for over 60 years—invites applications by Ph.D. students to present a paper as Guest Student Scholar in our upcoming conference on Structural Injustice, to be held September 27, 2024. Applicants should be formally working in programs in Political Science (or equivalents such as Government or Politics), Philosophy, or Law. (With Law, this might include Ph.D. or S.J.D. students.)

The format of our conferences is to include principal papers by scholars in philosophy, politics, and law, along with prepared comments by scholars in the other fields. Accepted student papers will be eligible (but without a presumption) for publication in the Nomos volume growing out of the conference. Applications are to include: (a) a 600-800 word abstract, (b) a CV, and (c) a letter of recommendation from the student’s supervisor, commenting on the contribution and stage of the student’s project. Applications should be submitted to by the deadline of October 15, 2023. For more about the ASPLP, see
