Summer Institute in American Philosophy: The Reaches of Pragmatism
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS AND EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
The 2015 Summer Institute in American Philosophy will be held at University College Dublin, Ireland from June 8-13, 2015. This is the first time that the SIAP, organized annually by the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, is being held in Europe. Appropriately, the 2015 Institute will explore the influences, interconnections, and encounters between pragmatism and other philosophical traditions.
The Summer Institute in American Philosophy is designed for faculty members, early career researchers and advanced graduates in philosophy and related disciplines who are interested in American philosophy in general and Pragmatism and Neo-Pragmatism in particular. Hilary Putnam (via skype) and Robert Brandom will deliver key-note addresses on the theme of the Summer Institute. The daily program will be centered around plenary panels led by a number of distinguished experts, spanning multiple sessions over two or three days. The panels for this year are on “Analytic Pragmatism” (Cheryl Misak, Huw Price, and Jim O’Shea), “Pragmatism and Critical Theory” (Maeve Cooke), “Feminist Pragmatism” (Marilyn Fisher and Charlene Seigfried), “Re-Reading Emerson” (Russell Goodman), and “Pragmatism in China”. Other speakers will be announced in the course of the next few months. There will also be a number of traditional conference-style sessions, including paper presentations and works-in-progress meetings.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS (Deadline: March 15, 2015)
At the Dublin SIAP, we invite submissions for papers in any area related to Pragmatism and American Philosophy. Abstracts for conference-style papers or for one of a variety of ‘work in-progress’ sessions are welcome.

New American Philosophy book series launched
Studies in American Philosophy, Pickering & Chatto
This recently launched series seeks to foster a conception of American Philosophy that celebrates the diversity of American thought without confining it to any doctrine, school, or methodology. “American” philosophy is defined broadly, including Canadians, immigrants, and native Anglo- or Franco-phone North Americans. The series is dedicated to monographs and essay collections that examine all aspects of America’s distinctive philosophical tradition from the 17th Century onwards, and from all theoretical perspectives. Attention to the historical development and social context of the philosophers and philosophies is encouraged.
To discuss a project or research idea, please email Commissioning Assistant Sophie Rudland (srudland [at] pickeringchatto.co.uk) or one of the Series Editors.
