The Polish Journal of Aesthetics
CALL FOR PAPERS 1:

Theme: The Philosopher Franz K.
Franz Kafka is one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, and thus one of the writers most often discussed by philosophers. In this issue, we view the author of The Trial and Metamorphosis as a philosopher, drawing attention not only to the traces of philosophical thinking in his writings and correspondence, but also to his educational and cultural background.
We invite papers on topics such as the following:
• Kafka as student and heir of Franz Brentano and Anton Marty, and his relations to the so-called Brentano School
• Kafka and Prague (the Café Louvre: Christian von Ehrenfels, Hugo Bergman, Emil Utitz, Oskar Pollak, Oskar Kraus, Alfred Kastil, Berta Fanta, Ida Freund, Max Brod)
• Kafka as inspiration for existential philosophy
• Kafka and vegetarianism
• Did Kafka foresee totalitarian regimes?
• Kafka’s Jewish heritage
• Kafka and aesthetics
• Kafka and Nietzsche
• Kafka and Meister Eckhart
• Kafka’s influence on philosophy
All Authors interested in contributing to this issue of 'The Polish Journal of Aesthetics', planned for publication in June 2019, are kindly requested to send full papers by submission page at journal's website by January 21, 2019.

Conference theme: Can we rely on international organizations?
“Can we rely on international organizations?”
The Department of Political Science at the University of Waterloo is pleased to announce that the annual Graduate Student Conference will take place on March 8, 2019 at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Uptown Waterloo. Graduate students from across Canada are invited to submit a proposal to present their research.
This year’s conference will be centered on the theme “Can we rely on international organizations?” We are seeking research papers that explore the role international organizations play in the global sphere and analyzing their effectiveness – or arguably lack thereof. This conference aims to incorporate papers that cover a wide array of topics related to this year’s theme. The international community is facing many challenges in the spheres of security, migration, climate, economics etc. Potential questions to explore could be: Can international organizations solve these tough problems? Are international organizations the best venue to solve these problems? What are some of the downfalls of international organizations? How can international organizations improve their efficiency?
We welcome submissions in the areas of International Relations, Peace and Conflict Studies, Political Theory, Canadian Politics, Gender and Politics, Public Policy, Political Economy, National and International Security, International Development and Environmental Politics. The conference will be divided into panels in order to allow presenters to interact with others in their fields. This conference is an opportunity for graduate students (Masters and PhD) and upper-year undergraduate students to share their research, hone their presentation skills, and network with other researchers and faculty members of both the University of Waterloo and the Balsillie School of International Affairs. Please submit your research for consideration by emailing a brief proposal to email@example.com. Proposals should include the title of the paper, as well as a 300-word abstract outlining the thesis or topic to be discussed, a brief discussion of the methodology used to pursue the topic, and its significance in relation to existing literature.
Please note presenters are not required to have completed their paper before the conference. If you are interested in being featured in the Political Science Grad Journal Inquiry & Insight, final papers must be submitted by April 30, 2019.
The deadline to submit abstracts is December 20th, 2019 at 11:59PM. Selected applicants will be emailed by February 1st, 2018.
Information about keynote speakers and the details of the day will be communicated at a later date.
For any further information, please contact the Political Science Graduate Student Association: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
