Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
This one-day conference will celebrate the work of Prof. Antony Duff, who for many years has been one of the world’s foremost philosophers of criminal law. In numerous books and scholarly articles, Duff has developed a persuasive liberal-communitarian theory of law and its institutions. His communicative theory of punishment has been central to the recent renaissance of retributivism in the philosophy of criminal law. That theory – along with his classic works on criminal attempts, on responsibility, and on the criminal trial – has shaped the discipline.
The following speakers will present papers relating to themes in Duff’s work:
Antje duBois-Pedain (University of Cambridge)
Alon Harel (Hebrew University)
Michael Moore (University of Illinois)
Tatjana Hoernle (Humboldt University, Berlin)
Victor Tadros (Warwick University)
Respondents will include Andrew Ashworth (University of Oxford) and Suzanne Uniacke (Hull University), plus Antony Duff (Stirling/Minnesota) himself.
There are a limited number of places available, at a cost of £20 each (to cover lunch and refreshments through the day). Please email Nikki.Leavitt@stir.ac.uk to register for this event.
With thanks for financial support from the Scots Philosophical Association, the Society for Applied Philosophy, and the Cambridge Forum for Legal and Political Philosophy.
