NOĒSIS: Call for Papers & Editors
NOĒSIS, the University of Toronto’s Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy, is now calling for editors and submissions for the 2013-2014 academic year.
PAPERS: Interested in getting published in an undergraduate philosophy journal? Here’s your chance: please e-mail a maximum of two papers prepared for blind review to email@example.com. We strongly encourage you to consider submitting papers that received A-range grades in 300- and 400-level courses and independent studies, as these are the papers that are usually accepted for publication. Apply only if you know that you will be available to work on the paper during the spring-term of the 2013-2014 academic year.
EDITORS: Editors read and review submissions and work with authors to edit and polish the papers chosen for publication. To apply to be an editor, fill in the questionnaire at http://goo.gl/kC7eEY and submit it alongside a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. The writing sample should be a recent paper in philosophy. Apply if you are going into third or fourth year and know that you will be available for the entirety of the 2013-2014 academic year.
The deadline for paper submissions and editor applications is October 1st, 2013. Feel free to submit a paper as well as an editor application. But be aware that if you are chosen as an editor you cannot publish a paper in the journal.

Welcoming another academic year, 2013-2014!
As your Philosophy Course Union, we hope that you had a productive yet restful summer and that you are now adapting rather successfully into what will be your future routine of courses, work, extracurriculars, sports, etc. for this upcoming year.
Are you taking some Philosophy courses? Or do you wish you were taking some but could not register in any this year? Perhaps you did not enrol in any but now feel suddenly compelled to find a discursive space to philosophize from time to time?
We are here to help.
The PCU aims to support and encourage all those UofT undergraduate students at the St. George campus who are either enrolled in a Philosophy program/course or simply interested in an intelligible quest for truth. This is done in a variety ways: most visibly, the PCU hosts different kinds of academic (i.e. debates between professors, discussions amongst faculty and students) and non-academic (i.e. socials) events throughout the year, although we provide many resources (i.e. office hours, past exams) as well.
Make sure to check the Events page in order to find out what’s happening next with the PCU. If you rather prefer us to tell you what’s going on, then pick how we should do it under Contact Us. And, if you have any questions, be sure to Ask us: we’ll be posting an FAQ shortly.
We look forward to seeing you soon at our upcoming events. Stay tuned for details!
Yours in ceaseless contemplation,
The PCU Exec
Q:will the anti-cal for 2013-13 be up soon?
With the new online course evaluation system, ASSU will stop publishing the Anti-Calendar. ASSU is in talks about how to replace the old anti-calendar.
In the mean time, feel free to post inquiries in our Facebook group about philosophy courses you’re interested in— we’re sure someone will have taken the course and can provide you with the feedback you’re looking for! Here’s a link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pcu.utoronto/
