The Center for Values and Social Policy at the University of Colorado Boulder, in collaboration with the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, will host a pre-read workshop on normative issues concerning markets and market-based societies on April 18-19, 2020.  Submissions are welcome on any topic related to the nature of, or issues within, markets and/or the institutions common to market-based societies.  At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to submit revised versions of their papers for consideration to Public Affairs Quarterly. The Editor of Public Affairs Quarterly will participate in the workshop and will be available to give feedback on all the papers, and we expect that at least one member of the PAQ Editorial Board will also participate and provide feedback.  Authors need not commit to submitting their papers to PAQ in order to participate in the workshop, however, and PAQ does not commit to publishing any of the workshop papers that are submitted: all such papers will undergo its standard peer review.

We welcome abstracts of up to 1,000 words.  Abstracts should be prepared for anonymous review and should be in either Microsoft Word or PDF format. We especially welcome submissions from members of underrepresented populations within philosophy.  Abstracts, and questions about the workshop, should be sent to

This workshop is made possible by funding from the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics.  Food and lodging will be paid for, and domestic travel expenses will be reimbursed (international travelers will be reimbursed up to a domestic equivalent).

Abstracts are due by Friday, November 22, 2019. Decisions will be made by the middle of December 2019. Full papers of between 4,000 and 10,000 words will be due March 1, 2020, and the workshop will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder on April 18-19, 2020.
