NOWAR: The Final Countdown!

Just a reminder that abstracts for the upcoming New Orleans Workshop in Agency and Responsibility (NOWAR 5) are due no later than NOON, March 15, 2019.  They should be no more than 3 double-spaced pages (ordinary font and margins, etc.), be saved as a PDF file, and be prepared for anonymous review. Send them by e-mail to David Shoemaker: A program committee will evaluate submissions, and decisions will be communicated by early May.

The fifth biennial New Orleans Workshop on Agency and Responsibility (NOWAR 5) will be held in New Orleans, LA at the Aloft Hotel on November 14-16, 2019. Confirmed keynote speakers are Pamela Hieronymi (UCLA), Richard Moran (Harvard), and Candace Vogler (Chicago). Abstracts are welcome on any topic having to do with agency and/or responsibility. Perspectives beyond just those from moral philosophy — including psychology, legal theory, neuroscience, economics, metaphysics, and more — are quite welcome.
