The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) invites the submission of abstracts to be considered for participation in a two day conference on “Justice, Inequality and Old Age”, to be held at the Centre’s premises in Salzburg on 27 and 28 November 2019. The conference is organized by Dan Halliday (Melbourne) and Gottfried Schweiger (Salzburg).
The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars in philosophy and proximate disciplines, with a view to discussing research on the relationship between aging and social/distributive justice. We are especially keen to receive submissions from early career scholars and from academics from groups under-represented in the profession.
Confirmed speakers include:
Anca Gheaus (Pompeu Fabra University)
Daniel Halliday (University of Melbourne)
Adam Swift (University College, London)
Gry Wester (Kings College, London)
Andrew Williams (Pompeu Fabra University)
We welcome papers on any topic relating to the conference theme, and anticipate accepting 4-5 papers in addition to those delivered by the confirmed speakers. Themes on which we would like to receive abstracts include (but are not exhausted by) the following:
Funding is available to cover 3x nights accommodation in Salzburg. Further funding for assistance with travel costs is currently being pursued. The organisers are considering organising a publication on the basis of the workshop. This is not yet fixed and will only be decided after the workshop. A willingness in principle to participate in a publication is nevertheless appreciated.
Please submit abstracts in word format (300-500 words, prepared for blind review) to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 7th.
