This is an as-yet untitled anthology in Open Court's 'Popular Culture and Philosophy' (PCP) series, edited by Damon Young and Graham Priest.
There are two important deadlines:
1. January 31st, 2008. We'd like a 500 word sample
of chapters by this date. The purpose of this is to give us
a sense of your writing style, so that we can provide timely feedback
2. August 1st, 2008. This is the deadline for draft chapters. After this date, the editing process will begin.
We suggest you have a read of the PCP guidelines, as well as chapters from previous titles in the PCP series (see Graham's chapter for Harley Davidson and Philosophy).
This is an as-yet untitled anthology, written for an academic audience. We have yet to formally approach a publisher.
In order to focus the papers for this anthology, we're planning a
second 'Martial Arts and Philosophy' conference in 2009. This
will be an opportunity to air your ideas and receive feedback, and for
Graham and me to get a sense of the quantity and quality of the papers.
There are two rough deadlines in connection with this:
1. The last weekend of June, 2009. This will be the conference
date. Please mark it in your diary, and see if you can get funding to
come to the conference. We won’t be able to provide any funding.
2. September, 2009. This will be the final deadline for chapter
submissions. Attendance at the conference is not a prerequisite
for submitting a paper – just a chance for you to get useful
We have a list of people who have indicated that they wish to
contribute to one or other of these volumes (or both). We are
very happy to receive further offers. (Please feel free to broadcast
If you have any comments or questions on either of these projects
(about your paper specifically, or the projects in general), feel free
to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
