The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics is pleased to announce its Fifth Annual Conference. The theme for 2019 is Bodies and Embodiment across disciplines, including politics, philosophy, law and ethics. 
We will explore issues such as the ethics and governance of the body, commodification, objectification and sexualisation of the body, marginalised and vulnerable bodies (including issues related to race, trans-identity, class, disability, illness, age and pregnancy), violation of the body, practices of body modification and enhancement and the relevance of embodiment to (abstract) theory.

In addition to the central theme, we invite contributions from a wide range of topics from across global ethics and justice. See Call for Papers for more information.

This conference fully endorses the Good Practice Scheme of the British Philosophical Association and the Society for Women in Philosophy.
