Call for Creations | Phi Magazine’s Liminal Issue
CALLING ALL PHILOSOPHY STUDENTS: Submissions are officially open for Φ Magazine’s Liminal Issue, our second issue of the 2021/22 academic year!
The word ‘Liminal’ encompasses the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the transitional stage of a process, boundary, or threshold. It comes from the Latin word līmen, relating to participants of rites of passage who no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete. During a rite’s liminal stage, participants stand at the threshold. In many ways, this is where the world stands today.
We take all kinds of submissions: prose, photography, poetry, painting, opinion pieces, film or music – you make it, we want to publish it! Share your work with us!
Submit to phimag.org/submit or email submissions.phimag@gmail.com before 14/02/2022
WHAT IS PHI MAGAZINE (Φ)?
Phi Magazine is a quarterly publication aimed at showcasing the creative talents of Philosophy students across the UK outside the academic realm. Be it photography, painting, poetry, prose, or anything in between then it can find a place in the pages of Phi.

The Eastern Michigan University Undergraduate Conference in Philosophy is now accepting papers for its conference to be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 19th and 20th, 2022. Papers selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minute presentation times, followed by formal comments and Q & A. All papers in philosophy, broadly construed, will be considered for the conference; since this is an undergraduate conference, no papers by professionals, graduate students, or others holding an advanced degree (in philosophy) will be considered. 

(NB: Our intention is to hold an in-person conference, but we will now be augmenting that with a limited number of virtual – Zoom – sessions. The in-person portion depends on local public health conditions, and these will join the virtual sessions if necessary.) 

Papers submitted for the conference should be 8-12 pages (2200-3600 words) in length and include an abstract of approximately 250 words. 

The deadline for submission is ThursdayJanuary 13th, 2022, and only completed papers accompanied by an abstract will be reviewed. We expect to announce the papers selected for presentation by the beginning of February.  

We will also be using a formal commenter system; so, even if your paper is not selected for presentation, you may be considered for such a role. Please let us know, along with your paper submission, if you are willing to comment. This also means that all selected papers will receive formal feedback at the conference. 

Keynote: Dr. Jaime Ahlberg of University of Florida

Students do not need to be a theology/religious studies major to participate, and the only requirements for the abstract are: (1) that it is no more than 300 words, and (2) that it outlines how the student intends to engage with an author or theme in Christianity and the Law of Migrationwhich is available online through most university libraries.
Please note that students who participate in the conference will be eligible to compete for a small financial award and the Macrina Award for Excellence in Theology.
