The Institute for Ethics & Society at The University of Notre Dame Australia is delighted to host the 2021 Notre Dame School of Virtue & Character.

Held over two weeks (23 November – 2 December 2021), the conference provides participants with the opportunity to engage with new work in moral, social, and political philosophy on the topic of virtue and character.

The 2021 conference will focus on the theme of ‘The Virtues and Vices of Moral Criticism.’

The conference features five keynote sessions, each running for 1.5 hours. The sessions are structured around a pre-read paper, and provide participants with the opportunity to engage directly with the speakers in a rigorous but friendly discussion of their work.

We welcome applications for participation via email. Due to COVID-19, the conference will be held on Zoom.

The five speakers are:

  • Professor Michael Lynch (University of Connecticut)
  • Assistant Professor Robin Zheng (Yale-NUS College)
  • Professor Linda Radzik (Texas A&M University)
  • Senior Professor Daniel Hutto (University of Wollongong)
