Death, Dying, and End Times: Annual Philosophy Graduate ad Postgraduate Conference 2019

April 26 - 28, 2019
University of Alberta
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Death, Dying, and End Times is the theme for the University of Alberta Philosophy Graduate and Postgraduate Conference, being held April 26th-28th, 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

We invite graduate students and postgraduates to submit papers to the graduate and postgraduate philosophy conference that will take place on April 26-28th, 2019 at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

The purpose of this conference is to bring into the open how the way we think about death affects all areas of philosophical and ethical discourse, with the aim of surmounting the opacity that normally characterizes the topic. As we live in a time that is increasingly seen as the end, as the point past which our planet and species can no longer return, we invite not only submissions that consider the realities of sustainability and climate policy, but those that address, from a historical or contemporary lens, the role of rationality in times of crisis, the political circumstances that emerge in times of impending catastrophe, and the possibilities of ethical life in the face of moral and political decay.

Our Keynote Speaker will be Leonard Lawlor, the Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy at Pennsylvania State University.
