We are pleased to announce the first of our biennial conferences on agency and responsibility.

Helen Beebee (Manchester)

John Martin Fischer (UC, Riverside)

Michael McKenna (Arizona)

Shaun Nichols (Arizona)

Helen Steward (Leeds)

Derk Pereboom (Cornell)

Kadri Vihvelin (Southern California)


We welcome submissions on topics in any area of agency and responsibility. Please submit abstracts (max. 1000 words) to benjamin.matheson@gu.se by 31 January 2016. We do not require submissions to be blind. Please include your contact details with your submission. We aim to notify successful applicants by 1 March 2016.

We encourage submissions from women and other under represented groups.
