Process of Reviewing:
The papers were blind-reviewed, meaning that authors were asked to eliminate all identificatory information and the reviewers did not have any information about the author when reading the papers. When reviewing a paper submitted by the member of the editorial board, we ensured that that particular paper was reviewed by other members of the editorial board.

Finally, we would like to thank the authors for their excellent papers, the Prometheus reviewers for reviewing the submissions, and Austin who guided us through the publication process. In addition, this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the philosophy departments who shared the call for papers for Prometheus. Thank you all for those who helped Prometheus, and we hope you enjoy the journal!

Without further ado, here are the files:

2020 Prometheus Conference Delay

2020 Prometheus Undergraduate Conference was delayed due to the university closure caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. It will most likely be held in Spring 2021 semester, concurrently with 2021 Prometheus Conference. More information regarding 2020 & 2021 Conference will come sometime next academic year.

Thank you for the submissions and we hope you are safe during these challenging times.
