Details

We're delighted to announce the first annual Rights Workshop, to be hosted at MIT in late May 2019, with a keynote from Frances Kamm (Rutgers, New Brunswick). Our topic is moral rights, broadly construed, and this year's theme is the link between rights and supererogation.

Attendance is open to academics in philosophy, law, and political theory, but we ask that you register in advance so that you can read the papers for our workshop sessions. These sessions will feature papers from Renee Jorgensen Bolinger (ANU/Princeton), Julia Driver (WUSTL), and Julia Markovits (Cornell), with comments from Joseph Bowen (St Andrews), Sandy Diehl (Harvard), Anni Raty (MIT), and Kieran Setiya (MIT).

All are welcome to attend our keynote, even without registration. That session will be on May 31st at 3:30pm.

For more information, please see our website. Next year's workshop is planned for St Andrews, and after that, we might have one in Australia. If you have questions, you are welcome to send them along to munozd@mit.edu.
