CFP: 2016 Workshop on Exploitation and Coercion (Carnegie Mellon University)

Posted on June 9, 2016 by

You can find the original CFP here. Below is a summary of what can be found on the official workshop website. I love the workshop format and will be hosting a workshop in Calgary next spring tentatively titled: Ethics in the Age of Neuroscience (stay tuned for that call in the coming months). Thanks to Liam Kofi Bright for the pointer.

“The Center for Ethics & Policy at Carnegie Mellon University invites paper abstracts for an inaugural Workshop on Ethics and Policy to be hosted November 4-5, 2016 at the CMU campus in Pittsburgh, PA. We are pleased to welcome Richard Arneson as our keynote speaker. In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the publication of Alan Wertheimer’s seminal work Exploitation, the theme for our inaugural workshop is “Exploitation and Coercion”. Submissions are welcome on any topic germane to the works of Dr. Wertheimer, with preference given to papers related to the relevance of exploitation and/or coercion to current issues in applied ethics and policy.

Submissions are due by July 15, 2016. Submissions should be submitted via email Emails should include the full name, contact information, and institutional affiliation of the author(s), as well as an abstract of 500-1000 words prepared for blind review in .docx or .pdf format. Abstracts will be reviewed by a program committee, and notifications will be made by August 15.”

I had the pleasure of hearing Richard Arneson give several talks, he is engaging and fun to chat with. I last heard him talk when he came to Calgary for a memorial conference on the work of Professor Dennis Mckerlie.
