On 20-21 May 2013 the fourth Meetings on Ethics and Political Philosophy, which will be held at University of Minho, Braga (Portugal), and is organized by the Political Theory Group of CEHUM of that university. This year, Peter Vallentyne (Klyne Chair, University of Missouri, Columbia), will be the keynote speaker. And, apart from a talk on political philosophy he will deliver a lecture on animal ethics and egalitarianism. In it he will present his paper “Of Mice and Men: Equality and Animals“, originally published in Journal of Ethics, 9, 2005, 403-33.
In addition to this, there will be other presentations on animal ethics, although the meeting will not be focused on this topic; they are open to contributions in general in moral philosophy and normative political theory.
If you are interested in presenting a paper on a topic of your choice, the deadline for submissions is 30th January 2013. You can send your paper proposal to Cátia Faria (catiaxfaria (a) gmail . com) or Maria Joāo Cabrita (majcabrita (a) gmail . com).
