The aim of the workshop is to foster innovative new work in business ethics by integrating insights from social and applied epistemology, as well as feminist theory.

Insights from social epistemology have increasingly helped to inform debates in ethics and political philosophy. At the same time, there has been a growing body of work at the intersection of social epistemology and feminist theory. This work analyzes the relationship between knowledge, society, and intersectional experiences of oppression and privilege.

However, despite the deep relevance that this work has to business ethics, we find that the connections between these areas have received little attention and have been largely underexplored and undertheorized in recent literature.

This workshop aims to make much-needed progress towards bridging these gaps by supporting scholarship in business ethics which draws upon perspectives in social, epistemic, and feminist philosophy.

The workshop will be held at Bentley University, in the suburbs of Boston, March 8 & 9, 2024.

We are delighted to have Erin Beeghly (University of Utah) as a keynote speaker.
