November 24, 2012, will mark the tenth anniversary of John Rawls passing away. The Global Justice Program at Yale University will mark the occasion with a full-day meeting on November 30 to which friends, admirers and critics of Rawls are cordially invited. We chose this date because November 24 is too close to Thanksgiving.


We are unfortunately not able to fully cover costs but will make an effort for all those who register by November 1 to match student guests with local students and to get discounts at a local hotel for the other guests. We will provide food and good cheer and assemble an outstanding critical audience for six papers to be presented. Selected presenters will get priority placement with local students and, if resource-constrained, up to $400 in travel funds. In notifying winners in late October (see below), we ask them to tell us asap whether they will need support and, if so, how much.

To guarantee that the reserved room will be appropriate for this event, we kindly ask all participants to register. Please, use [email protected] for all correspondence (inquiries, paper submissions, registration).

The organizing committee:

Daniele Botti, Rachel Payne, Daniel Putnam, Matthew Lindauer, Thomas Pogge
