Many thanks to Matthew for the invitation to contribute to Ethics Etc. I would like to let readers know about a workshop and an associated call for papers.

The Department of Philosophy at New York University will host a workshop on the 16 & 17 May 2014. The topic of the workshop is “Value and Virtue in Ethics and Epistemology.” Confirmed speakers include Thomas Hurka (University of Toronto), Julia Driver (Washington University in St. Louis), and Daniel Star (Boston University).

Two presentation slots are available through this open call for papers. Please submit an 750 word abstract by 1 March 2014. Decisions will be communicated by 1 April 2014. Only submissions directly related to the topic will be considered. Submissions critically engaging with Thomas Hurka’s work on the topic are strongly encouraged. Please email submissions in .pdf (strongly preferred), .doc(x), or .rtf to value.and.virtue@gmail.com. Questions to be directed to the same address.

Registration is free but required. Please email to register by 15 April. The workshop is organised by Barry Maguire (New York University) and Kurt Sylvan (Rutgers/Southampton), and supported by the New York Institute of Philosophy.
