Nurturing Democratic Responsibility in the Age of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The 25th Annual Conference of the Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum brings together educators, scholars, practitioners, and other experts in the field of ethics education to share best practices, innovative teaching methodologies, pedagogical approaches, and compelling scholarship that will engage students and others in critical ethical reasoning about important and timely issues.

The 2024 conference will explore the complex relationship between democracy, responsibility, and the rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. The conference will examine the ethical dimensions of AI's integration into democratic systems and analyze the responsible deployment of AI in shaping and reshaping democratic processes. Some topics of special interest this year include: ethical discourse and civility; civic engagement and democratic participation; bias, fairness, and justice; and trust, transparency, and accountability. Key objectives of the conference are to equip educators with the necessary tools to cultivate responsible and engaged citizens committed to the principles of democracy, and to discuss and assess ethical challenges concerning the integration of AI in democratic processes, as well as to explore strategies to address these challenges in the classroom and beyond.

The 2024 SEAC Conference Directors are Edyta Kuzian and Dan Wueste (Clemson University) and Jason Scott Robert (Arizona State University).

Proposals for presentation are due by Aug. 15

Submissions may include full papers or abstracts of no more than 250 words; session formats include papers, panels, case study analysis and discussion, poster sessions and pedagogical demonstrations. Presentations are typically 20-25 minutes in length, allowing for 5-10 minutes of Q&A. Submissions are to be formatted for blind review. We encourage undergraduate and graduate students to submit their work. The Society sponsors a competition for the best paper submitted by a graduate student. The winner receives a $500 cash award and free conference registration. The Society publishes Teaching Ethics, and conference papers may be sent to the editors for publication consideration.
