CFP: Exploitation Workshop, University of San Diego, Mar. 9-10, 2020 (deadline: Jan. 31, 2020)

Recently, the concept of exploitation has received renewed attention in moral and political theory. We invite papers for a workshop that focuses on exploitation, addressing topics such as, `What is exploitation?’, `What, if anything, is wrong with exploitation?’, and `What is the role of a theory of exploitation within a broader moral and political theory?’ We also invite papers of a more applied nature that focus on topics like sweatshops, surrogate labor, and medical care.

The workshop will be held at the University of San Diego on March 9 and 10. We will accept 5-6 papers for 90 minute presentation and Q&A sessions. Selected papers may be considered for publication in an edited volume.


Please submit anonymized papers, no longer than 7500 words, with the subject line ‘exploitation workshop’ to  by January 31. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by Feb 7.

For more information please email Benjamin at the above address.
