We are happy to invite abstracts of 500 words prepared for anonymous review to the ninth annual Understanding Value conference at the University of Sheffield (UK), to be held from the 7th-9th July 2020. Understanding Value IX is the ninth instalment of a highly successful postgraduate conference at the University of Sheffield that aims at cultivating postgraduate work on value in a welcoming and inclusive space. As such the University of Sheffield and the organisers of Understanding Value highly encourage submissions from members of underrepresented groups in philosophy. 

At Understanding Value we are interested in papers addressing issues pertaining to value broadly construed.  Value permeates many questions in philosophical discourse and as such we welcome papers from any area of philosophy for consideration. We also welcome interdisciplinary contributions. For instance, areas of interest may include, but are by no means limited to: 

  • Metaethics
  • Feminism, postcolonial studies, and critical philosophy of race
  • Disability studies 
  • Implicit Bias 
  • Philosophy of Medicine 
  • Metaphysics 
  • Virtue Ethics 
  • Epistemic Injustice
  • Epistemic Vice and Virtue 
  • Debates in Normative Ethics 
  • Epistemic Normativity 
  • Reasons, Rationality, and Argument 
  • Testimony and Trust 
  • Philosophy of Beauty 
  • Aesthetic Norms
  • Philosophy of Art
  • Philosophy of Sex
  • Moral, Aesthetic, and Political Disagreement 
  • Nihilism & Existentialism

  • Blame and Blameworthiness 
  • Moral Authority 
  • Philosophy of Food

  • Philosophy of Wellness and Happiness
