The 9th annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will take place in Tucson, AZ October 14-17, 2021.  The workshop will be held in a hybrid format in person at Westward Look Resort and on Zoom.

Workshops for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy (currently) alternate between two formats. In even years, the speakers are all by invitation. In odd years (which are the years in which we award the Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy), the speakers are mainly selected by blind review of submissions. A typical program will have eight papers. A selection of papers from the Workshop will be published in volume 9 of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy.

This annual Arizona Workshop features new work in normative ethical theory broadly construed, to include not only issues about the right and the good, but meta-theoretical questions about the project of developing and defending normative ethical theories.  

Normative ethical theory addresses general questions about the right and the good and attempts to answer such questions as: What sorts of actions are right or wrong and why? What sort of person ought one to become and why? Normative ethical theories, including, for instance, versions of consequentialism, deontology, contractualism, natural law theory, and virtue ethics address such questions.
