Deadline for Submissions: 15 December 2017

The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of Salzburg is happy to announce the call for papers for its "2018 Salzburg Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty". In 2018, the workshop will be held at the University of Salzburg on 17 & 18 May 2018 and focus on the topic of "Poverty and the Family".

The invited speaker for this workshop is Jonathan Wolff (Oxford), who will give a talk on "Poverty, Social Expectations, and the Family".

We invite scholars to submit papers on any topic of philosophical inquiry into poverty. Possible topics include poverty as an issue of global or social justice, human rights and poverty, the ethical obligation of poverty alleviation and the design of poverty alleviation measures or philosophical issues in poverty measurement, the conception of poverty and poverty research.

Preference will be given to scholars in the earlier stages of their career and to papers that are related to the workshop topic of "Poverty and the Family". Possible topics for papers are, among others, the intergenerational transmission of poverty, inequalities between and within families, responsibilities towards poor families, parents and children, the relation between the family and the state, parental rights and duties under conditions of poverty, the ethical underpinnings of policy responses to family and child poverty, gender roles, patriarchy, intimate violence and poverty, or procreation in an radical unequal world and in times of severe poverty.

The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will have 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion). Draft papers are shared in advance and speakers can focus on the key points of their paper in the oral presentation. A peer-reviewed publication of selected papers is envisaged in an edited volume on the workshop topic in the Springer Book Series Philosophy and Poverty. We expect that particpants consider this option to publish their paper presented at the Workshop.

There is no conference fee. Coffee breaks and two lunches will be covered by the CEPR. Unfortunately we cannot offer any subsidy for travel and accommodation costs.

If you are interested in participating please submit an extended abstract of 750 words ready for blind review via the submission form on the workshop homepage. Deadline for submissions is 15 December 2017, and decisions will be communicated within two weeks. It is expected that draft versions of the papers are shared two weeks before the workshop.

FACHTAGUNG: Kind und Moral
2.-4. November 2017, TU Chemnitz

Neue Zeitschrift: on_education

on_education was born out of a nagging feeling of discomfort with the present culture of debate. Education is a highly controversial and contested issue, but enduring conflict and political debate, it seems, are not always cherished virtues in academia. We offer a space for taking positions – and are convinced that positioning opens up a space ’beyond’ academic research. We wish to push the established boundaries between quantitative and qualitative schools of thought, micro and macro approaches, theoretical and empirical research – and stimulate new, possibly surprising alignments. We do not yet know what exactly we are helping to create with on_education – but are attracted by the ambiguity and indeterminacy of it all. We hope that our readers will be as open-minded, committed and curious as we are!


Aims and scope

Education is a highly controversial issue that touches on and permeates almost all aspects of life in modern societies. on_education aims to stimulate public and academic debate on the theory and practice of education. As a freely accessible online journal, it provides a forum for the international research community, as well as for the broader public. By bringing together scholars, journalists, bloggers, politicians, and practitioners, on_education should help to advance the notion of building bridges that challenge established divisions and break up “echo chambers”. on_education offers a publicly visible and accessible discursive space in which representatives of divergent schools of thought, methodological approaches, and political perspectives, can engage in constructive debates on educational topics.

Format

on_education publishes three issues a year. Each issue focuses on one topic of current interest and contains between five and seven short essays or opinion pieces by invited contributors. An editorial provides an overview of the issue and an introduction to the debate in question. To facilitate the discussion, readers will be able to participate by commenting on the contributions. The editorial team reserves the right to reject comments.

Konferenz: Philosophy and Childhood, 13 & 14 Juli 2017


Call for Papers: Philosophy and Childhood

13-14 July 2017, University of Salzburg, Austria


Keynote Speakers:S. Matthew Liao  (New York)
Amy Mullin (Toronto)


Adam Swift (Warwick)

While neglected for a long time, the moral and political status of children has aroused considerable attention in the last years. Philosophers are increasingly interested in the challenges children and childhood pose for ethical theories and the normative concepts suitable for grasping the special situation of children. Children’s rights, the well-being of children, the place of children in theories of justice and the value of childhood have been discussed extensively and there is a vivid debate on issues like educational justice and the family as the central institution for childrearing. Still, there are many controversies going on which need further examination, e.g. regarding the vulnerability of children, their agency, the nature of childhood and the implications different phases of childhood have for the normative status of the child, e.g. when considering the autonomy and rights of teenagers. In addition there is the question on what ethical theories can contribute to the evaluation and improvement of dangers children are facing currently, like child poverty, obesity or the economization of childhood.

This conference wants to bring together philosophers and interested scholars from other disciplines working on these and related subjects. It aims to be a forum for the most recent developments in philosophy and childhood. Submissions are welcome from all fields of philosophy where the moral and political status of children is discussed: social and political philosophy, philosophy of law, medical ethics, philosophy of education, applied ethics etc.

The Organizing Committee invites the submission of abstracts for single papers and thematic panels on all topics of philosophy and childhood.

Please submit an abstract of 350 words ready for blind review using the submission form on the conference homepage: www.philosophy-childhood.org.

The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2017, notifications will be sent out approximately three weeks after this deadline. If you run into any troubles with your submission please email the organizers: gunter.graf[a]sbg.ac.at

This conference is organized jointly by the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research, University of Salzburg, and the Chair of Philosophy V, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich.

This conference is organized as part of the research project "Social Justice and Child Poverty", funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF): P26480: www.child-poverty.org
