Poverty and the Family

Workshop at the University of Salzburg

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".

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.
