The NTPA welcomes submissions from all philosophical orientations, including (but not limited to) the history of philosophy (ancient, medieval, modern, late modern), phenomenology, philosophical hermeneutics, environmental philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of religion, critical race theory, feminist philosophy, aesthetics, post-colonialism, and post-structuralism. We especially encourage submissions from historically overlooked or marginalized perspectives. An open call for papers will be announced during the fall. We now accept payment for conference fees online via Pay Pal.
