Open Call for Papers: Character and Virtue in the Professions 17th November 2015 Academic Conferences

An Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held at the University of Birmingham, June 2-4, 2016

Open Call for Papers

The Jubilee Centre has been researching various possible approaches to character education in a variety of human occupations and professions, and has published reports on the professions of law, medicine, and teaching. New projects have begun researching the professions of the British Army, nursing, and business, as well as work on developing teaching interventions to put into higher education courses. Such work has been conceived by the Jubilee Centre as a significantly interdisciplinary enterprise to which a broad range of disciplines – including psychology, sociology and theology as well as philosophy – have indispensable contributions to make. This conference seeks to bring the work of scholars from different disciplines to bear on issues of how best to educate moral character for the professions. 

We would like to warmly invite interested parties to submit abstracts of papers on some aspect of professional character and virtue for presentation in the general programme of the conference.  To submit, please send an abstract of no more than 400 words to jubileecentrepapers@contacts.bham.ac.uk (marked 'Character and Virtue in the Professions' in the subject line) no later than 5pm on Monday 4th January 2016. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out before the end of January 2016.
