The workshop The Ethics of Travel is now open for registrations both for in-person and online attendance. We will have talks on the ethics of flying; the relationship of travel with rights, justice, and the good life; the influence of tourism on local communities; the epistemic and existential (dis)value of travel; and the ethics of specific kinds of travel such as dark tourism and sport fan tourism. We are hoping for a lively discussion on site, as well as online in an asynchronous manner: online attendants will be able to post comments that speakers can reply to after their talks, and we have also a few short lightning talks that will be pre-recorded and available throughout the workshop.

The conference will take place on 18th-19th April 2024 at Tilburg University (The Netherlands), and will be broadcast live through a closed YouTube channel. We will provide with access to registered attendees a few days prior the conference, so please register before 10th April to ensure your participation online or to accommodate you at the venue if you are attending in person.
