Ethics Papers at Eastern APA

Following the lead from Certain Doubts and Experimental Philosophy, I thought it might be helpful to post the ethics-related papers that will be presented at the upcoming Eastern APA.   There are, of course, other papers relevant to ethics (e.g., papers on race, inclusiveness, etc.).  If you think something should be added to this list, please feel free to add it to the comments section.  We’ll post the ethics-related papers from the Pacific APA shortly.
