Call for Abstracts*, Gothenburg Responsibility Project Conference #1, 24-27 August 2016, University of Gothenburg.
We are pleased to announce the first of our biennial conferences on agency and responsibility. These conferences will bring together philosophers working on agency and responsibility, including both established figures and those early in their careers and those working in both "theoretical" and "applied" areas of these topics.
This is the final reminder about the December 1 submission deadline.
We are pleased to announce that the Fourth Annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will take place on June 1-3, 2016 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.
There will be nine papers at this year’s conference, including four invited papers by the following people:
• Alex Voorhoeve (London School of Economics), Ralf Bader (Oxford), Adam Swift (Warwick) and Zofia Stemplowska (Oxford), Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen (Aarhus University)
We are issuing a call for papers to fill the remaining five conference slots. Submitted papers should be between 7,500 and 12,000 words including footnotes, should be totally anonymized, and are due by Dec. 1. (The workshop is being held three months earlier than usual, and hence the deadline is three months earlier.) Accepted papers for the conference will receive serious consideration for inclusion in the resulting Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy volume.
