The Neumann University Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development (http://isscd.org), in conjunction with the Neumann University Philosophy Department will host the 41st Conference on Value Inquiry: Sport and Values at Neumann University in Aston, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, 16-18 April 2015.
Broad participation is sought. We welcome papers that address various aspects of sport and values. Most accepted papers will be primarily directed to a scholarly audience, yet the conference will have presentations that fall into the following three categories:
- Papers primarily directed to a scholarly audience.
- Interactive presentations primarily directed to an undergraduate student audience.
- Graduate and undergraduate student presentations (e.g., paper, poster, or TED-style talk of no more than 15 minutes).
Please indicate the category (a, b, or c) for which the submission should be considered. Papers and interactive presentations should be between 20-25 minutes long. Submissions of papers (a), or detailed outline of presentation including learning outcomes for students (b), or abstracts of student presentations (c), must be received by January 15, 2015 for first consideration.
Presentations may be practically or theoretically oriented. Topics may be disciplinary, or interdisciplinary, ranging over issues between two or more fields of value inquiry. Drew Hyland, Trinity College, author of Philosophy of Sport, and Fr. Patrick Kelly, SJ, Seattle University, author of Catholic Perspectives on Sports: From Medieval to Modern Times, will be among the keynote speakers.
