CFP: Stanford Center for Ethics in Society Inaugural Junior Scholars Workshop

The Center for Ethics in Society will host an inaugural Junior Scholars Workshop at Stanford University on June 7-9, 2018. The workshop will feature the work of early career scholars in political philosophy, political theory, and moral philosophy, and is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and untenured junior faculty. This workshop seeks to highlight the work of emerging scholars, and to advance the Center’s mission of bringing ethical reflection to bear on pressing social problems.

For our inaugural workshop we are especially interested in scholarship in what might be called “interdisciplinary ethics.” Normative scholarship focused on issues like immigration, climate change, global poverty, and the governance of new technologies can benefit from engagement with the social sciences, law, and life sciences. We especially encourage submissions that bring relevant empirically-oriented scholarship to bear on normative questions and analysis. Yet we welcome submissions from political philosophers, political theorists, and moral philosophers that address any normative issue, whatever the methodological approach or topic. Papers will be evaluated by multiple readers and on the basis of quality alone. read more...

CFP: Duke Graduate Conference in Political Theory, 2017-2018

The Political Science department at Duke University will host its annual Graduate Conference in Political Theory on February 8-9, 2018. We will consider proposals from graduate students in any related discipline, and on any topic in the fields of political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought. We particularly welcome submissions which will engage a diverse audience.

In addition to building community among graduate students at different universities, this conference offers graduate students a rare opportunity to receive feedback on their work from eminent scholars in the field — each selected student paper will have its own faculty discussant drawn from the local political theory community at Duke and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. We are also pleased to announce that John McCormick of the University of Chicago will join us as the keynote speaker for the conference. read more...
