2022 Annual Conference, 11-13 July, online

Keynotes: Prof. Pamela Hieronymi (UCLA) and Prof. Kieran Setiya (MIT)

Call for papers

Papers are invited for the 2022 annual conference of the British Society for Ethical Theory. This conference will be held online in the afternoons (UK time) of 11th and 12th July and the morning of 13th July 2022.

We welcome philosophical discussion of any branch of ethics, including the history of ethics, applied ethics, ethical questions in the critical philosophy of race, gender, and disability, moral psychology, normative ethics, and metaethics.

BSET operates a fully anonymised refereeing system. A submitted paper must contain no information identifying its author, so please prepare your paper thoroughly for anonymous review.

We aim to have at least one postgraduate speaker at the conference, and we often have more. All author information remains unknown to the Chief Referee until they have ranked submissions in order of preference.

Papers must be unpublished at the time of submission and suitable for presentation in 35-40 minutes. Submissions should be in English, no longer than 6500 words (excluding references), and fully anonymised. Those who submitted papers for our previous conferences — successfully or otherwise — are welcome to submit again, although not the same papers.

Please note that there is no longer any association between selection for BSET and publication in Ethical Theory and Moral Practice.

Registration will open in June. Attendance will require membership of BSET, except for graduate students and those facing financial hardship. (If you are a member of one or both of these groups and you have already paid membership, you can apply for a refund of your 2022 membership fee by writing to the Treasurer, Charlotte Newey, at c.newey@reading.ac.uk.) There will be no separate registration fee for this conference.

The deadline for submission of papers is strictly Monday 28th February at 5pm GMT. We will let authors know whether their papers have been selected by the start of May. Please submit your paper through our online submission system.

We hope to be able to host an Annual Conference in person in 2023, and thereafter to offer a mixed schedule of in person and online conferences.
