Caputo (Villanova), David Ingram (Loyola University), and Stephen Watson (Notre Dame). Please note that we have extended the CFP deadline to June 24. Also, we encourage interested graduate students to submit their papers for the new Hans-Georg Gadamer essay prize. See CFP for details. You may download a copy of the updated CFP here.
