CALL FOR PAPERS: The BRITISH SOCIETY for ETHICAL THEORY








CALL FOR PAPERS: The BRITISH
SOCIETY for ETHICAL THEORY

2007 CONFERENCE

University
of Bristol
, UK

9-11 July 2007

 

Invited Speakers: Roger Crisp
(
Oxford University) David Velleman (New York University)

 

Papers are invited for the
annual conference of the British Society for Ethical Theory, to be held at the
University of Bristol. The subject area is open within metaethics and normative ethics.
Papers on topics in applied ethics or the history of ethics may also be
considered provided they are also of wider theoretical interest.

 

Papers, which should be
unpublished at the time of submission, should be in English, no longer than
6500 words, readable in at most 45 minutes and in a form suitable for blind
review. Please send your submission electronically, and include an abstract, as
well as your full name, address and academic affiliation. Those who submitted
papers for our previous conferences –successfully or otherwise — are welcome
to submit again (though not of course the same papers!).

 

Please tell us if you are a
postgraduate student: submissions from postgraduates are encouraged as our aim
is that some such should be represented at the conference.

 

Selected conference papers
will be published in the journal "Ethical Theory and Moral Practice".
Please make clear in any covering letter whether you want your paper considered
for publication here as well as for the conference programme.

 

The deadline for submissions
is
8th
December, 2006
. Papers and accompanying particulars should be
emailed to Dr. Alison Hills at the following email address:

 

bset.submissions@gmail.com

 

Note that ONLY electronic
submissions will be accepted.

 

The BSET conference is a
major ethics conference held annually in or near the
UK. Our programme normally comprises around 11 papers, 2
invited, the rest submitted. Submitted papers are blind refereed. All those we
select for the programme are assigned a generous time allocation (around 75
minutes, 45 minutes reading time, 30 for discussion) and all papers are given
to plenary sessions. We are a
"British" society only as regards the geography of where we hold our
meetings and such trivia as the way we spell "programme"; we seek to attract
submissions from an international field. Submitted papers read to previous
conferences have included material by Robert Audi, Margaret Gilbert, Dan Jacobson,
Maggie Little, Rahul
Kumar
, Mathias Risse, Henry Richardson, Michelle Mason, David
Sobel, Valerie Tiberius Jeanette Kennett
and Garrett Cullity among many others.
