Understanding Value is back! After an incredibly successful fifth conference, we are already well on our way with Understanding Value Six.
We are delighted to announce that the University of Sheffield’s graduate philosophy conference Understanding Value will return for a sixth event in 2017. The conference will take place on the 19th–21st July 2017.
Understanding Value is an annual conference for postgraduates and recent PhDs dedicated to the philosophical discussion of value. The theme’s breadth means that the conference always has an extremely diverse range of talks from a number of different areas of philosophy, making for highly stimulating discussions and an exciting event. Talks can be from any area of philosophy, theoretical or applied, and any tradition within philosophy, including interdisciplinary projects, so long as they are clear and related to the nature of value.
We will be having four keynote speakers this year and we are incredibly honoured to confirm that Maria Baghramian (University College Dublin), Chris Bennett (University of Sheffield), Kristie Dotson (Michigan State University), and Owen Hulatt (University of York) will be speaking at the conference.
Please see our Call For Abstracts by going to the tab above. The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended to April 21st 2017 and we guarantee a response by May 12th.
We will be following the British Philosophical Association (BPA) and Society for Women in Philosophy (SWIP) guidelines throughout the conference. Details of these guidelines can be found here: http://​www​.bpa​.ac​.uk/​r​e​s​o​u​r​c​e​s​/​w​o​m​e​n​-​i​n​-​p​h​i​l​o​s​o​p​h​y​/​g​o​o​d​-​p​r​a​c​t​ice
