Friday, 18th January, 2019, University of Southampton
As part of the European Commission-funded research project Art and Ethics, the University of Southampton’s department of philosophy is hosting a one-day workshop at its Avenue Campus.
The workshop is designed to maximize the benefit to the authors presenting their work. Papers will therefore be circulated at least a week in advance and participants asked to pre-read them. Discussions will last around 90 minutes per paper.
We are inviting any interested parties who plan to attend to register by filling in this form by Friday the 11th January at the very latest. The event is free and open to the public.
Besides general planning, registration is necessary for the timely distribution of papers to participants before the workshop.
