CFP: Chapel Hill Normativity Workshop

Deadline: November 15 2017
Date: March 9-11 2018
Location: University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Keynote Speaker: Selim Berker (Harvard)

The Workshop aims to provide a forum for stimulating and constructive exchange among philosophers currently working on issues concerning normativity, broadly construed to include: the traditional questions of metaethics (and analogous questions about other normative domains); theories of reasons, rationality and reasoning; the semantics and pragmatics of normative language; the psychology of normative judgment; and the nature of epistemic normativity. The hope is to showcase cutting-edge work in these and related areas, providing speakers with useful feedback, and other participants with lively presentations and conversation.

There will be seven talks in total, six of which will be filled via open call. Selection will be based on anonymous review of long abstracts (750-1000 words). If you would like to submit, please submit your abstract, anonymized, to chnormativity (at) gmail.com by November 15th 2017. Abstracts should be suitable for a 40 minute presentation.

Registration is required for all attendees. To register for the Workshop, you need only send an email to chnormativity (at) gmail.com letting us know you’ll attend.

Organizers: Chris Howard and Alex Worsnip
