For those of you who didn't see the initial CFP, I'm reposting it below the fold.


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

Further information about the Workshop and previous workshops are available on the workshop website (under construction):http://www.bgsu.edu/departments/phil/conferences/index.html
