Western Kentucky University

The 39th Conference on Value Inquiry “Virtue, Vice, and Character” will be held at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green Kentucky 11-13 April 2013. Broad participation is sought. Papers and proposals for papers that address considerations of virtue and vice in character development, moral decision-making, moral education, and whether character is even possible are particularly welcome. Early submission is strongly encouraged and advised. Papers should be between 20-25 minutes reading time. Papers submitted by 1 February 2013 are ensured review and will receive priority in selection.

Papers may be practically or theoretically oriented. Topics may be disciplinary and range over issues within a single field of value inquiry such as normative ethics, applied ethics, aesthetics, political theory, or economics. Topics may be interdisciplinary and range over issues between two or more fields of value inquiry. Topics may even be meta-disciplinary and range over purely conceptual issues important for fuller understanding of values tied to virtue, vice, and character.
