SAAP 2018 Annual Meeting

The SAAP 2018 Annual Meeting will be in Indianapolis, IN, at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station, March 8-10, 2018.

Papers in all areas of American Philosophy are welcome. Scholars who are not presently members of the Society, but whose work is in American thought are especially encouraged to submit. We also invite contributions that address the conference theme.

CONFERENCE THEME: "Ethos and Creativity"
The conference theme comes from the title of the most philosophically significant essay about the host city, Indianapolis. The essay, written by Indianapolis poet Mari Evans (1923-2017) about race and artistic practice, originally appeared as "Ethos and Creativity: The Impulse as Malleable" in Where We Live: Essays about Indiana (Indiana University Press, 1989).
