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.
The Speculative Ethics Forum is a one day workshop-style event in which we’ll consider the most challenging matters of ethics. Ethical approaches of all sorts are welcomed–analytic, continental, ancient, medieval, Asian, and so on. Most papers are invited. However, there are two slots open for submissions. Any paper in ethical theory will be considered for acceptance. Bold and speculative inquiries are preferred to papers that primarily defend ground already gained or papers that are primarily scholarly. Our aim, in short, is to have a single day concentrated on expanding the horizons of ethics.
The Speculative Ethics Forum takes place on Saturday, December 5th at the St. John's University Manhattan campus.
The Prindle Institute for Ethics has launched a new podcast called Examining Ethics. It's a long form podcast (typically with three segments).

There are two episodes out now, an interview with Paul B. Thompson in the first episode and Rebecca Gordon in the most recent episode.
