DePauw University 8th Annual Undergraduate Ethics Symposium – April 9-11, 2015 (Deadline February 1st)

 

The Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University is sponsoring the eighth annual Undergraduate Ethics Symposium, April 9-11, 2015. Please post the attached flyer, share it with faculty, and encourage your students to submit. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2015. Students can submit electronically here.

 

The symposium includes four keynote talks from leading experts on this year’s theme, Value and Virtual Spaces, including a talk by Anita Sarkeesian, who has recently made national headlines for her work critiquing portrayals of women in video games. Students also participate in breakout sessions to discuss the work they submitted with each other and one of the four keynote speakers. More information about the symposium is below and in the attached flyer.

 

More About the Symposium

This is an interdisciplinary symposium that is open to students in any academic discipline working on projects that speak to issues of ethical concern. We welcome analytic submissions, such as a paper. We also welcome creative submissions.

 

This year’s theme will encompass ethical concerns brought to the forefront by our increasingly technological modern society. From social media and video games to online currency and net neutrality, there is an abundance of moral questions raised by the virtual world. We welcome submissions on the Symposium’s theme as well as from all other areas of ethical concern - such as personal morality, business ethics, bio-medical ethics, media ethics, feminist ethics, and diversity issues - so long as the submissions are received by the February 1, 2015 deadline.

 

This is an honors symposium, so only 25 to 30 submissions will be accepted. Each participant will be in a seminar led by a visiting scholar or artist; the seminars will consist of seven to ten students each. In these small groups, students will benefit from the critiques and comments of their peers. We are pleased to announce four experts in the realm of virtual spaces who will be joining us this year and who will work closely with the participants:

 

·Solon Barocas - Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Information Technology Policy, Princeton University

·Patrick Byrne - Founder and CEO of Overstock.com

·Matthew Kenyon - Associate Professor at Stamps School of Art and Design, University of Michigan

·Anita Sarkeesian - author of the video blog "Feminist Frequency" and creator of the video series Tropes vs. Women and Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

For those students accepted to the symposium, DePauw University will cover lodging and meals while at DePauw. Travel expenses would be the responsibility of the participant. Assistance with travel funds may be available in certain circumstances.

 

Again, we would greatly appreciate your posting the attached flyer, sharing this information with faculty and encouraging students in your classes to submit their work.
