Great Lakes Philosophy Conference

Identity and Ethics


Dates: April 8-10, 2022

Location: Virtual, via Microsoft Teams

Deadline for Submissions: January 1st, 2022

Notification of Acceptance: January 21st, 2022

Any paper that relates to the theme of “Identity and Ethics,” broadly construed, will be considered. Topics might include, but are not limited to, trends in ethics, interpersonal ethics, social ethics, ethics within and across disciplines and specialties, the intersection of ethics and politics, applied and professional ethics, metaethics, ethical theory, and ethical considerations regarding race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, etc.

This year’s conference will also feature a special stream for presentations related to the topic of “Communicating About Race.” Our hope is to compile a selected number of papers from this special stream and submit them, alongside other invited contributions, for publication as part of an edited volume. Authors of papers submitted for this special stream will be invited to submit their fully completed papers for consideration for inclusion in the publication proposal. For details regarding this publication, please contact Dr. Leland Harper at [email protected].

We hope to have an interdisciplinary event and welcome submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, and professional philosophers, as well as from a range of fields including philosophy, law, public policy, business, medicine, history, religious studies, political science, social science, or related fields. Submissions from active scientists, researchers, or practitioners are also welcome, particularly insofar as those presentations could complement the theme of the conference. We also especially welcome proposals from women and minorities, and are committed to making this year’s conference inclusive and welcoming to all.

**There will be a prize for the best undergraduate student paper.**
