2024 Call for Proposals 
The President and Program Committee of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society (OVPES) invite proposals that broadly interpret the theme—authenticity—for its annual meeting to be held at the Seasons Lodge in Nashville, Indiana, Thursday through Saturday, September 19-21, 2024. Conference leadership welcomes proposals that make connections between philosophy and education, both related and unrelated to the conference theme.  OVPES remains a site for experimental thinking with educational and philosophical ideas in a collegial and friendly environment.
Proposals for individual papers, alternative sessions, and panels or symposia involving multiple speakers on a single topic are welcomed. Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Annie Schultz, Program Chair, at on or before May 15, 2024. More information on the conference theme and submission guidelines can be found in the attached full CFP.
Publishing Panel 
We’re kicking off our 2024 conference with a special Publishing Panel on Thursday night. Current, incoming, and outgoing editors of some of our field’s top journals will answer questions about how to get published, choosing the right journal for your work, what editors are looking for, what makes their journal unique, and more. The panel will be moderated by Barrett Smith, doctoral student in Educational Studies at University of Cincinnati and practicing Latin teacher at Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati Public Schools.  Barrett has served as Editorial Assistant for the journal Democracy & Education for three years. Our panelists include:
·OVPES 2024 President, Sarah Stitzlein, co-editor of Democracy & Education
·Amy Shuffelton, editor of Studies in Philosophy and Education
·Rebecca Taylor, incoming editor of Educational Theory
·Jessica Heybach, former editor of Education and Culture
·Kathy Hytten, current co-editor of Education and Culture
·Kurt Stemhagen, current co-editor of Education and Culture
Get to the Seasons Lodge Thursday evening for this exciting panel, followed by our opening reception!
