Injustice, Resistance, and Progress

Call for Papers

Theme: Injustice, Resistance, and Progress
Type: International Conference
Institution: Department of Government, London School of Economics
  Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics, Georgia State University
Location: London (United Kingdom)
Date: 4.–5.6.2018
Deadline: 12.1.2018

We live in a non-ideal world, in which injustices abound, including
political corruption, racial and gender discrimination, systemic
poverty, and wars of aggression. How may or should individuals and
corporate agents respond to these injustices? How should the quest
for moral progress be pursued and what ethical considerations
constrain this pursuit?

This conference will be a forum for presenting original recent
scholarship on how ethics applies to agents, marginalized subgroups,
and institutions acting within unjust frameworks. We welcome
submissions from scholars working in these areas, from both normative
and critical traditions, addressing different aspects of the
relationship among injustice, resistance, and progress.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- Gender and racial injustice
- Civil disobedience and other forms of illegal political action
- The morality of armed revolution
- Political corruption
- Public reason and moral repair
- Domestic and global economic injustice
- Secession and resistance
- Commemoration and dissent
