Midwest Study Group

About the Study Group

The Midwest Study Group of the North American Kant Society was founded in 1995 by Manfred Kuehn, then at Purdue University, in order to advance the discussion of Kant and to promote interaction among Kant scholars. Weekend meetings, held annually in late Fall, feature several refereed papers and plenty of time for discussion and interaction. Recent meetings have also featured invited speakers.

The Midwest Study Group of NAKS invites submissions for detailed abstracts (1,000-1,200 words) for its 2024 annual meeting, to take place in Milwaukee, jointly hosted by Marquette University and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Please supply author name, affiliation, and contact information in a separate file.Graduate students should note their status in the contact information.

Please send all abstracts electronically to Bennett McNulty, 

The selection committee welcomes contributions on all topics of Kantian scholarship (both contemporary and historically-oriented), including discussions of Kant’s immediate predecessors and successors. We especially encourage submissions from individuals of groups underrepresented in philosophy and Kant scholarship in particular. 

The best graduate student paper will receive a $200 stipend and be eligible for the Markus Herz Prize awarded by NAKS. Papers already presented at other NAKS study groups or meetings are not eligible for submission. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing (though this is not required in order to submit a paper).
