Assistant Professor in Philosophy – PPE

Position

Utrecht University will offer a new undergraduate (Bachelor) program in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) as from September 2018. The program will be selective, admitting 75 students per year and providing an intensive, small-scale and interdisciplinary training in the study of political and economic institutions, from the point of view of four disciplines: philosophy, history, politics and economics. To support the program, we are searching for four Assistant Professors:

  1. Assistant Professor in Economics
  2. Assistant Professor in Politics & Governance
  3. Assistant Professor in History
  4. Assistant Professor in Philosophy

The assistant professors will be appointed at one of the four departments participating in the PPE program: the Utrecht School of Economics, the Utrecht School of Governance, the Department of History and Art History, and the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. Each assistant professor will be involved in high-quality teaching and supervision tasks within the PPE undergraduate program, and to a more limited extent also in the regular programs offered by the four departments attached to PPE. Research activities will take place within the department of which the assistant professor is a member. read more...

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...

Call for Nominations: 2018 NASSP Book Award

Each year the North American Society for Social Philosophy (NASSP) honors the best book published in social philosophy during the previous year. The Book Award Committee invites you to nominate a book to compete for the award for 2017. (For the purposes of this award, a book’s eligibility is determined by the year of its copyright rather than by the year of its release.)

The Award will be conferred on a book published in 2017 that makes the most significant contribution to social philosophy. The field is to be construed broadly, to include social and political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of social science, and social ethics. Excluded are anthologies, historical studies, and works on ethics that lack a distinctly social component and works on a social topic that lack a substantial philosophical component. read more...
