December 4th 2010
Montclair State University
This conference will explore problems related to the theory and applications of justice. Submissions are welcome on a range of issues related to justice, but we are most interested in papers that link the Classical notions of fairness, virtue, and responsibility to contemporary problems. We are also interested in work that shows how theoretical constructs can help resolve practical issues associated with justice in teaching, and in academia in general. Papers might address, for instance, justice in the classroom, affirmative action, employment trends, or the scholar’s obligations to town and campus. Scholars who are exploring inter-disciplinary (e.g., political science and philosophy) applications of justice are also encouraged to submit their papers. Papers should be roughly 12 pages long. Each conference participant will have approximately 20 minutes to present the paper, with time set aside for Q&A afterwards. Submissions should be e-mailed as *.pdf or *.doc attachment, double-spaced, with an abstract of 250 words maximum. Send your papers to the Conference Organizer:
SocietyForMoralInquiry@gmail.com. If you are interested in serving as a commentator or session chair, please contact the conference organizer about this as well.
The deadline for submissions is November 15th, 2010.
