CALL FOR ABSTRACTS 

The Bowling Green Workshop in Applied Ethics and Public
Policy 

Political Utopia:
Promise or Peril?
 

April 25th-26th, 2014 

The Bowling Green Workshop in Applied Ethics and Public
Policy will take place in Bowling Green, Ohio, April 25th-26th,
2014. The keynote speakers are David Estlund (Brown University) and Gerald Gaus
(University of Arizona). 

Those interested in presenting a paper are invited to submit
a 2-3 page abstract (double-spaced) by November
1, 2013
. We welcome submissions in all areas in applied ethics and
philosophical issues relevant to public policy. Special consideration will be
given to papers relevant to this year’s conference theme: on the prospects of
ideal and nonideal theory in contemporary political philosophy. The theme is to
be construed broadly, so we encourage submissions that draw on normative
ethics, metaethics and applied ethics. 

Only one submission per person is permitted. Abstracts will
be evaluated by a program committee and decisions made in November 2013. Please
direct all abstracts and queries to: pibarra@bgsu.edu
