Dates: 27th–29th July, 2016
Location: The University of Sheffield
Understanding Value is an annual conference for postgraduates and recent PhDs dedicated to the philosophical discussion of value. The theme’s breadth means that the conference has an extremely diverse range of talks from a number of different areas of philosophy, making for highly stimulating discussions and an exciting event. Talks can be from any area of philosophy, theoretical or applied, and any tradition within philosophy, including interdisciplinary projects, so long as they are clearly argued and related to the nature of value.
The event is free, but attendees must register by the 20th of July by following the link above.
There are a limited number of subsidized spaces in university accommodation and at the official conference dinner available to attendees, which can be booked with registration (please register ASAP if you would like either of these add-ons).
Keynotes: James Lenman (Sheffield), Jennifer Corns (Glasgow), and Ulrike Heuer (Leeds).
Understanding Value V is made possible with the support of: the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities, the British Society of Aesthetics, the Mind Association, the Society for Applied Philosophy, the Aristotelian Society, the Analysis Trust, and the Society for Women in Philosophy UK.
