Pre-reflective Agency conference - ‘The piecemeal business’ constitutive of our ethical lives

Thursday 29 June 2023 (08:30-17:45), University of Birmingham

The call for papers is now open for this cross disciplinary conference on pre-reflective agency with a submission deadline of 25 February 2023. Details on how to submit your paper can be found on our conference webpage where you can also find a provisional programme:

The overarching aim of this conference is to advance our understanding of the role played by pre-reflective agency within our ethical lives. Explicitly cross-disciplinary, this conference is organised around four sub-themes: 

1.    Habit changeability (and its relationship to perceived affordances)

2.    Pre-reflective convictions of [in]appropriateness and implicit normativity

3.    The digital mediation of everyday habits and modes of agency

4.    Moulding the infrastructure that moulds our habits: design interventions (this includes, but is not limited to, data-reliant infrastructure)

Applications from early career researchers are particularly encouraged.
