About the Event
Proposals dealing with any aspect of Jewish ethics—theoretical or applied, classical or contemporary—are welcome. We seek proposals on any topic, including projects that utilize philosophical, historical, social scientific, cultural studies, literary, or critical theoretical approaches to matters of Jewish ethics.
In addition, this year we are particularly interested in presentations dealing with issues related to race, race-ing and gendering bioethics, health care justice; policing, security in Jewish communal institutions especially alternatives to armed or police based security, conflicting values in creating security for places of worship; affect theory in ethics / emotions in ethics, imagination in ethics; natalism and anti-natalism, the ethics of demography; pluralism vs. democracy, democracy as a moral category in jewish ethics.
Presentations might also include innovative syllabi in ethics-related disciplines. We are also interested in presentations that highlight activism, for example, the role of Jewish ethicists as activists and consultants, or the intersection of the study of Jewish ethics and activist practice. Panel proposals involving members of the Society of Christian Ethics and Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics are welcome.
