The workshop aims to provide a forum for stimulating and constructive exchange among philosophers currently working on issues concerning normativity, broadly construed to include: the traditional questions of metaethics (and analogous questions about other metanormative domains); theories of reasons, rationality and reasoning; the semantics and pragmatic of normative language; the psychology of normative judgment; and the nature of epistemic normativity. The hope is to showcase cutting-edge work in these and related areas, providing speakers with useful feedback, and other participants with lively presentations and conversation.

There will be seven talks total, six of which will be filled via an open call and selected through anonymous review, plus a keynote address by Selim Berker (Harvard). We aspire to make the workshop an annual event, and we very much hope you'll join us in sunny and beautiful Chapel Hill this spring for its inaugural occurrence. In addition to excellent presentations, there will be plenty of opportunities for socializing with fellow normativity folks at a selection of Chapel Hill's lovely restaurants and bars during each night of the workshop.
