CFP: 2013 Association for Legal and Social Philosophy

Deadline: 14th January 2013

Conference: 24th – 25th June 2013


Description: The theme of the meeting is “Combining Theory and Practice.”  Papers are welcome in any substantive area of legal, social, or political philosophy (justice, democracy, rights, liberalism, communitarianism, punishment, etc) and from any philosophical methodological approach, but we particularly welcome those addressing the conference theme. These may be primarily either theoretical or practical in nature, but should seek to connect or combine the theoretical and the practical realms. They might, for instance, demonstrate how theoretical contributions can inform practice or illustrate how practice (and empirical study of practice) has implications for theory.  Both individual papers and proposals for panels on related topics are welcome.

Keynote speakers: Bob Goodin (ANU/Essex), Serena Olsaretti (ICREA-Pompeu Fabra)

Call for papers: Please send paper/panel proposals to by 14th January 2013. Submissions should consist of a title and 400-500 word abstract (for each paper, in the case of panels). These may be sent in the body of the email or as an attachment (.doc, .docx, .pdf), but please ensure that they are prepared for blind review (i.e. author’s name and affiliation should appear in your email but not with the abstract).
