The University of Richmond is hosting a workshop on ability and enhancement in Richmond VA, April 8-9. We welcome submissions related to all ethical issues related to human abilities. For example, essays addressing genetic enhancement, disability and stigma, procreative ethics, distributive justice and ability, post-humanism, sex selection, and public health ethics would all fit well within this theme. We are especially interested in papers within subfields such as bioethics, political and legal philosophy, moral psychology, value theory, normative ethics, experimental philosophy, metaethics, and feminist ethics.
Those interested in presenting a paper are invited to submit a 300-1000 word abstract by January 15, 2015. Selected presenters will receive funding for travel and accommodations and an honorarium. Workshop papers may be considered for inclusion in an edited volume. Workshop participants will also be invited to attend a presentation by Dr. Wendy Chung on April 7, which is part of the Jepson Leadership Forum (Details here). A program committee will evaluate abstracts and finalize a program by February 1. Please direct all abstracts and queries to Shannon Best:email@example.com.
