The topic of the second Jena Summer Symposium in Philosophy (JeSyP 2019) is “The Ethics of Knowing”. This year’s distinguished guest is Professor Alessandra Tanesini (Cardiff University).
In the two-day workshop from July 31st to August 1st, we aim to address a broad range of topics and questions from epistemology in general, social epistemology, ethics, social and feminist philosophy, for example:
This list of questions is not exhaustive, but mostly illustrative. We welcome discussions of any topic within the ethics of knowing, broadly construed.
We invite submissions of long abstracts (500-1,000 words) of papers suitable for presentation in 40 minutes, primarily from early-career post-docs and graduate students. Abstracts must be in PDF-format and properly anonymized to allow for blind review. Please send these abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org until January 31st, with a separate PDF-file stating your full name, affiliation and any further needs with respect to childcare or accessibility as well as an overview of all estimtated costs of travel and accomodation.
Acceptance of abstracts will be announced in February. Successful speakers will then be asked to submit their full paper until June 30th in order to leave the commentator sufficient time to prepare a 10-minute comment on the paper after the speaker's presentation.
We will apply for funding for travel and accomodation for all successful speakers. Irrespective of the outcome of this funding application, we may still be able to offer a limited number of travel stipends for successful speakers without sufficient independent funding for travel and accomodation. Philosophers who would otherwise be unable to participate are kindly asked to indicate this clearly in the separate PDF-file with all estimated costs when submitting their abstract.
Participation in the workshop is free and open to all, but since places are limited, all are required to register in advance.
