The Event: The Ethics and Public Affairs (EPAF) program at Carleton University is pleased to announce its sixth annual multidisciplinary graduate conference. This will be a hybrid face-to-face and online event. The first day will be fully virtual. The second and third day will take place live and in-person in Ottawa, ON Canada, featuring our keynote speaker and social events.
The Theme: The phrase “building back better” is being increasingly employed in calls and proposals for a global crisis recovery plan. The idea of what it means to build back better prompts us to rethink how we do and should organize our societies, institutions, and communities. The concept raises both normative and empirical questions: what does ‘better’ mean, and how can we get there from here? Conference presentations may address these questions with respect to any of the following:
- Ethics of recovery
- Climate action
- Public health infrastructure and emergency response • Income inequality
- Dissent and public opinion
- Science and policy
- Social justice, movements, and activism
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Reconciliation
- And more...
The Keynote Speaker: Amandine Catala, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Canada Research Chair on Epistemic Injustice and Agency, Department of Philosophy, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)
