The Society for Moral Inquiry invites proposals for our session on Ethics and Academia at the 2013 Eastern Division APA meeting in Baltimore, MD, December 27‑30, 2013. Papers might address topics such as the obligations of university faculty and administration; the ethical aspects of teaching at the college level; ethical issues related to gender, race, or disability in academia; and general issues related to scholarship. The three hour session will comprise three 30 minute presentations with discussion period. Submissions should be prepared for blind review and emailed to both Chris Herrera (Chris….@montclair.edu) and Alexandra Perry (APerry@Bergen.edu) by May 1st, 2013.
The Society for Moral Inquiry (SMI) was founded in 2009 to advance academic research on ethical problems, and to improve understanding of how that research might contribute to discussions of social policy. SMI is devoted to the belief that public engagement with philosophy can inform debates about values in areas such as medicine, science, sport, law, and social policy. The Society hosts scholarly conferences on ethics, awards fellowships for early-career scholars, and edits both Theoretical & Applied Ethics, a peer‑reviewed journal published by The University of Nebraska Press, and Studies in Theoretical & Applied Ethics, a book series published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
