Call for Abstracts
The Responsible Beliefs project at the University of Helsinki is happy to invite abstracts for a workshop on responsibility for beliefs (broadly construed). This two-day, in-person workshop aims to bring together philosophers working on the normativity of and responsibility for doxastic states from varying perspectives (e.g., epistemic, moral, prudential, etc.). Our keynote speakers will be Susan Wolf (UNC Chapel Hill), George Sher (Rice) and Rik Peels (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam). (Other invited speakers may be added later.) The current plan is to organize the workshop in person in Helsinki, but there may be room for a few hybrid sessions. If there are significant changes to the Covid situation or international travel restrictions, the workshop may have to move online.
Possible questions that abstracts could address include (but are not limited to) the following:
Abstracts should be: (a) 750-1,000 words long, (b) prepared for anonymous review, and (c) suitable for a 30 minute presentation. We strongly encourage authors from underrepresented groups in philosophy to apply.
Please submit your abstracts via email to ResponsibilityForBeliefs@gmail.com by March 31, 2022. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact project researchers Max Lewis (max.lewis at helsinki.fi) or Giulia Luvisotto (giulia.luvisotto at helsinki.fi).
Submission deadline: March 31, 2022
Decision of acceptance: April 15, 2022
