North American Nietzsche Society 2018 Conference

Stanford University October 5-6, 2018 / Call for Abstracts

The North American Nietzsche Society will hold its second international conference at Stanford University on October 5-6, 2018. The conference will feature two keynote speakers, Jessica Berry (Georgia State University) and Alexander Nehamas (Princeton University), and approximately six papers selected on the basis of abstract submissions. Sessions will be 90 minutes, with approximately 40 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion.

Submission of abstracts: Abstracts on any aspect of Nietzsche’s philosophy should be prepared for blind review and sent by February 1, 2018.

  • Send 750-1500 word abstracts as a PDF file to:
  • In the body of your email, include your paper title, name, institutional affiliation, and contact information.
  • The abstract itself should contain no identifying information.
​The program committee will evaluate submissions and prepare a program of roughly six presentations. The initial review of abstracts will be blind, although at the final stage the program committee may consider demographics and other relevant factors. Decisions will be announced by April 2018. Papers presented at the conference may be published in a special issue of the Journal of Nietzsche Studies.

Graduate student prize: we will reserve one spot for the best abstract submitted by a graduate student (though additional graduate student abstracts may be chosen via blind review). We will cover all travel expenses for the winner of this prize. If you wish to be considered for this prize, indicate that you are a graduate student in the body of your email.

Panel presentations: there may be space on the program for one or two panel sessions of approximately 90 minutes. These sessions would feature multiple speakers discussing some aspect of Nietzsche’s philosophical thought. We welcome proposals for panels. Please include a brief description of the topic and a list of participants. Indicate whether these participants are confirmed or merely suggested. ​
