Philosophy of Disability

June 7 – 9, 2014
Department of Philosophy
Syracuse University

SPAWN is the Syracuse Philosophy Department’s annual summer conference. This series continues a tradition that started with “Metaphysical Mayhem” and continued with the “Syracuse Workshop” series. Each conference focuses on a particular topic, beginning with the 2005 workshop on consciousness. “Read-ahead” papers are invited from younger participants, with comments being delivered by more senior participants. Sessions will consist of brief remarks by a commentator and then an hour or more of discussion among all participants. For past conferences, click here.

In order for this format to work, the group must remain reasonably small. So, if you are interested in attending, or would like further information, please contact Steve Steward <>.

This year’s conference is sponsored by the Alice L. Hooker ’34 Endowed Fund for Philosophy and the Central New York Humanities Corridor supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
