Young Epistemologist 2002
2002 RUTGERS EPISTEMOLOGY CONFERENCE
YOUNG EPISTEMOLOGIST PRIZE
The Rutgers Epistemology Conference announces the second annual prize for the best essay submitted to the Conference by a person with a Ph.D. obtained by the time of submission but not earlier than ten (10) years prior to the date of the conference. (Thus, for the Conference on April 19/20th of 2002, the Ph.D. must not have been awarded prior to April, 1992.) The prize winning essay will be presented at the annual conference and will be published (along with the invited papers) in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research. The winner of the prize will receive an award of $1,000 plus all travel and lodging expenses connected with the Conference.
The essay may be in any area of epistemology. The essay must be limited to 5,000 words (not including footnotes and bibliography) and submitted on a PC-formatted disk along with three (3) printed copies. The essays will be judged blindly and, thus, the three printed copies (but not the disk copy) must be prepared in such a way that the author's identity is completely masked. Therefore, the name, institution, and all other references pertaining to the identity of the author are to be omitted from the manuscript, notes and bibliography. Only papers submitted in this fashion will be considered.
Papers must be postmarked by December 1, 2001. The winner of the prize will be announced by February 1, 2002. By submitting the essay, the author agrees to have it posted on the Rutgers Epistemology Conference Webpage and published in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research.
Please send all papers (along with the disk and a self-addressed postcard that will be returned to entrants acknowledging receipt of the essay) to:
The Young Epistemologist Prize
