The Lund Gothenburg Responsibility Project ( invites submissions for its 2023 graduate conference. LGRP is a 10-year-long project funded by the Swedish Research Council, which aims to be a leading centre for the study of responsibility and related themes. 

We are pleased to announce that the keynote speakers will be: Paulina Sliwa (University of Vienna), who has written on moral epistemology, moral psychology, and ethics; and Carla Bagnoli (University of Moderna and Regio Emilia), who has written on philosophy of action, moral epistemology, and moral psychology.

The conference aims to bring together early researchers working on new and exciting developments in the philosophy of responsibility and free will. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

-        Philosophical methodology for the field of free will and responsibility

-        Approaches to praise and blame

-        Theories of punishment

-        Responsibility over time

-        Responsibility and atypical agency

-        Responsibility and power imbalances

The conference will take place in Lund, Sweden, on the 13th and 14th of April, 2023. There will be up to seven talks besides the keynotes. Speakers will be asked to deliver a full paper of between 6000 and 8000 words at least a month before the conference. Each speaker will be assigned a member of LGRP as a dedicated commentator. Presentations will last for 40 minutes, followed by 40 minutes for comments and Q&A.
