Call for Papers

The Hume Society is pleased to announce a call for papers for its twenty-sixth anniversary conference, to be held in Cork, Ireland, July 19-23, 1999. (The 10th Enlightenment Congress will be held July 25-31 at University College, Dublin.) The theme for the conference -- "Mind and Society" -- is to be construed broadly, to include Hume on the mind, society, social aspects of mind, mental aspects of society, and so on. Papers bearing some relation to the theme will be especially welcome; however, papers on any aspect of Hume's life and works will be considered.

Papers should be no more than thirty minutes reading length with self-references deleted for blind reviewing; the author's name should appear only on a front cover sheet. Papers may be in English, French or German, but an abstract in English is required for all papers. Authors are requested to submit papers and abstracts in triplicate.

The Hume Society has set aside up to $1000 for the support of graduate students reading papers at the annual Hume Society meetings, to be given at the discretion of the Conference Co-Directors to those whose papers have been accepted through the normal vetting process.


Submissions must be postmarked by November 1, 1998.
