The Philosophy Graduate Students Association is organizing an international political philosophy conference at the University of Guelph from September 20–22, 2013 titled Politics at the Limits of Civil Society. Keynote addresses will be given by Dr. Max Pensky (Binghamton University), Dr. Chiara Bottici (New School for Social Research), and University of Guelph's own Dr. Monique Deveaux.

This conference is sponsored by Philosophy Graduate Students Association, Department of Philosophy, College of Arts, Vice President of Research, and the Canada Research Chair in Ethics and Global Social Change.

A selection of proposals has been completed and a schedule of presentations is forthcoming. A full list of presentations and abstracts for keynotes can be found on our website.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
