2nd CFP: Felician Institute Spring Conference

Here’s the second CFP for the 11th Annual Conference of the Felician Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs. Conference to take place Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Felician University’s Rutherford campus (227 Montross Ave., Rutherford, New Jersey 07070). Papers due February 1, 2017. Plenary speaker is Michele Moody-Adams, of Columbia University, speaking on hate speech: “Taking Expression Seriously: Liberty, Equality, and Expressive Harm.”

Past participant endorsements from the Conference’s Fake News Division:

John Rawls: “An extremely exciting conference. Added some spice to my prose style for weeks.”

Robert Nozick: “Best conference I’ve ever attended–whether I was high or sober.”

Bernard Williams: “It seriously rocked my world. I left even more of an amoral skeptic than when I came.”

Judith Jarvis Thomson: “The cutting edge of analytic rigor. Encountered some truly psychedelic thought-experimentation there.”

Alasdair MacIntyre: “A genuine contribution to the common good.”

Annette Baier: “Probably the most feminist-friendly conference in the business.”

Charles Mills: “Minority friendly, too.”

Kevin Vallier: “Orthodox Christians are welcome as well!”

Jonathan Haidt: “Really happy to hear my name coming up every five minutes…”

Jason Brennan: “My God, do these Felician people know their way around the social science literature. Not just a bunch of flat-footed philosophers, as per the usual philosophy conference. And some of these guys have spent more time working in corporate America than I have!”

Donald J. Trump: “Very unfair.”
