The conference, celebrating PLATO’s tenth anniversary, will focus on ethics – in schools, the university, communities and the public sphere, and across the lifespan.  Of all philosophy’s areas of focus, ethics is perhaps one of the most accessible, the way many are introduced to the discipline both in and out of school and at various stages of life. During the conference, we will explore how to incorporate ethical perspectives into discussions that unfold in educational and other public spaces across all age groups. The conference aims to present a diverse set of perspectives on ethics education.

Submissions from PK-12 educators, graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, administrators, and others interested in ethics education are welcome. Submissions on other topics in philosophy in schools and public philosophy will also be considered. We welcome proposals for conference presentations, workshops, and a poster session. Proposals, aside from workshop proposals, will be blind-reviewed. All proposals must be submitted by December 1, 2019More information on the format and requirements for proposals can be found here.
