Dear Postgraduate Philosophers,

the 1st Munich Graduate Conference in Ethics will take place at the University of Munich (LMU) on July 30th/31st 2020. It will be the first of a series of annual graduate conferences focussed on topics in ethics, broadly conceived. It will offer postgraduate researches a friendly environment to present their work and gain feedback, to establish valuable contacts to other early career researchers, as well as address and discuss early career issues.

Kindly hosted by the Munich Centre for Ethics (Münchner Kompetenzzentrum Ethik, MKE), we will invite ten graduate speakers to present their work on any topic in ethics, including metaethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of action as well as related areas. The keynote lectures will be given by Catriona Mackenzie (Macquarie) and Ulrike Heuer (UCL). In addition, we will run an academic career workshop with a special focus on prospects for members of underrepresented groups in academia. The conference language will be English.

We invite submissions by current MA students, PhD students as well as researchers who have completed their PhD in 2018 or later. Speakers will be asked to give talks of 20min, which will be followed by a short commentary by PhD students from LMU and about 15min of discussion.
