Papers are invited for the 2023 annual conference of the British Society for Ethical Theory. This conference will be held in person at the University of Reading on 12th and 13th July 2023.

We welcome philosophical discussion of any branch of ethics, including the history of ethics, applied ethics, ethical questions in the critical philosophy of race, gender, and disability, moral psychology, normative ethics, and metaethics.

BSET operates a fully anonymised refereeing system. A submitted paper must contain no information identifying its author, so please prepare your paper thoroughly for anonymous review.

We aim to have at least one postgraduate speaker at the conference, and we often have more. All author information remains unknown to the Chief Referee until they have ranked submissions in order of preference.

Papers must be unpublished at the time of submission and suitable for presentation in 35-40 minutes. Submissions should be in English, no longer than 6500 words (excluding references), and fully anonymised. Those who submitted papers for our previous conferences — successfully or otherwise — are welcome to submit again, although not the same papers.  

The deadline for submission of papers is strictly Thursday 1st December 2022 at 11.59pm GMT. Our online submission system will open soon at the BSET website.
