56th Annual Meeting of Societas Ethica - Digital Humanity – Ethical Analyses and Responses in an Age of Transformation

27 juni 2019 - 30 juni 2019 | Tutzing (Germany) | Societas Ethica

From 27 – 30 June 2019 the 56th Annual Conference of Societas Ethicas will be held in Tutzing, Germany. The theme of this conference is Digital Humanity – Ethical Analyses and Responses in an Age of Transformation.

What are the principal challenges posed to the field of ethics in light of digitalization? Given the profound individual, social, political, economic, technological and scientific transformations taking place, how should philosophical and theological ethicists effectively respond? How should responsibility, privacy, and human and non-human agency be defined in the digital age? To what degree are normative approaches to philosophical and theological ethics being engaged, applied or revised in light of digitalization? How should we define “the good life” in the digital age? Are human terms and the concept of emotion applicable to machines? What ethical and legal concepts are at stake and what interests are present in the intersection of humans and machines in the digital age?

We encourage contributions from the fields of philosophy, theology, and applied ethics, as well as political and social sciences, psychology, history, law, technology studies, computer science, and robotics.

Papers can be submitted addressing the following thematic fields in this regard:

Paper proposals should contain no more than 800 words (excluding bibliography), and clearly present a moral question or argument addressing at least one of the aforementioned thematic fields. Proposals must be submitted by March 1st, 2019. Papers can be presented in the conference languages of English, German, or French. For more information please look here.
