BSET: 13-15 July 2009 | CFP: 12 December 2008
Via Simon Kirchin:
The 2009 British Society for Ethical Theory Conference will be held at the University of Reading from 13-15 July 2009. The subject area is open within metaethics and normative ethics. Papers on topics in applied ethics or the history of ethics may also be considered provided they are also of wider theoretical interest. The deadline for submissions is 12th December, 2008. Papers and accompanying particulars should be emailed to Dr. Bart Streumer. Note that ONLY electronic submissions will be accepted.
Papers, which should be unpublished at the time of submission, should be in English, no longer than 6500 words, readable in at most 45 minutes and in a form suitable for blind review. Please send your submission electronically, and include an abstract, as well as your full name, address and academic affiliation. Those who submitted papers for our previous conferences – successfully or otherwise – are welcome to submit again (though not of course the same papers!).
Please tell us if you are a postgraduate student: submissions from postgraduates are encouraged as our aim is that some such should be represented at the conference.
Selected conference papers will be published in the journal “Ethical Theory and Moral Practice”. Please make clear in any covering letter whether you
wish your paper to be considered for publication here as well as for the conference programme.
Invited Speakers: James Lenman (Sheffield), Jeff McMahan (Rutgers).
