The George Washington Forum on American Ideas, Politics, and Institutions, which has its home at Ohio University, invites paper proposals for a conference and subsequent edited volume on Equality and Public Policy.
The conference will be held at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio (14–16 November 2013). Gerald Gaus (Arizona) will deliver the keynote lecture, while Elizabeth Anderson (Michigan), Dierdre McCloskey (Illinois- Chicago), George Sher (Rice), Scott Winship (Brookings Institution), Steve Horowitz (St. Lawrence) and Todd Zywicki (George Mason) will deliver plenary lectures.
This conference aims to promote academic discussion and to explore new research trends on equality as a so- cial and political ideal guiding public policy. The conference organizers welcome the work of advanced doc- toral students and both young and established scholars in the fields of philosophy, economics, law, political science, history, and other fields in which equality is a topic of research.
Proposals — which should include a 500-word abstract, a brief curriculum vitae, and current contact information should be sent by 1 February 2013, to the conference organizers.
