The Stockholm Centre is now inviting submissions for its next annual Graduate Reading Retreat. The 2015 Retreat will take place at Bergamo University, Italy. Up to six places are available for graduate students doing philosophical work in the field of the ethics of war and peace. Each student will have a plenary session (30 minute presentation, 15 minute response and an hour's discussion) on their submitted paper. All papers will be pre-circulated and each student will be allocated a respondent from the invited faculty, who will provide both written comments and a short response during the session. Any student who has their paper accepted will receive a generous contribution towards their travel, and will have the costs of all their meals and accommodation covered.

Those wishing to submit a paper should email it to no later than 1st of March 2015. Papers should be no longer than 10,000 words, excluding references, and should be suitable for blind-refereeing. Please note that submitted papers should be unpublished, and not be under review at the time of the retreat. Please include your name, email address and affiliation in the submitting email, along with a one page CV. You should also attach a letter from your supervisor or head of department confirming that as of the 1st of March 2015 you are registered as a graduate student or within three months of your viva, and confirming your year of study. Please do not include letters of reference or other supporting materials. Papers are selected on merit. However, some preference will be given to students who did not participate in the 2014 GRR.

This event is kindly supported by the Philosophy Department of Bergamo University. (However, please direct all enquiries to Helen Frowe.)
