CFA: Lost Voices in Metaethics, University of Washington, August 2018

Abstracts due:  December 15th, 2017
Conference:  August 2018
Final papers due:  December 2018

One of the most exciting areas in recent philosophy is metaethics – the investigation of the origins and basis of moral facts, moral concepts, moral knowledge, and moral language. Metaethics is also one of the most historically-oriented parts of contemporary philosophy, regularly drawing inspiration from Plato, Aristotle, Hume, and Kant.

Male European philosophers have not been the only people with metaethical interests, however. This conference aims to introduce overlooked ideas and perspectives into contemporary metaethics. We are particularly (but not exclusively) interested in thinkers from outside the mainstream European philosophical tradition, including thinkers who did not identify themselves as philosophers. To help facilitate discussion, all papers should engage in some way with the framework of contemporary metaethics (as described in, e.g., the Routledge Handbook of Metaethics), though this engagement can be critical.

The conference will take place in August 2018 (exact dates TBD) at the University of Washington, Seattle. Abstracts of around 500 words should be sent to Colin Marshall ( no later than December 15, 2017. Invitations to join the conference will be made by late January 2018. We are currently able to award two travel grants of $750 for non-tenured speakers, though we hope to secure more funding in Spring 2018 (please indicate in your submission if you are interested in these grants).

Papers presented at the conference should not be published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Routledge Press has expressed interest in publishing a collection of papers resulting from the conference, so speakers should be willing to prepare final drafts of their papers by the end of 2018.
