bcc applied ethics conference

Third Annual Conference on Applied Ethics
                                 Broome Community College
                                            April 1-2, 2011
                                        Religion and Ethics:
                                 Conflict, Tolerance, and Promise
The Spring Conference on Applied Ethics 2011 invites papers, panels, and presentations on the topic of Religion and Ethics. 

A perennial subject in many disciplines, the relationship between religion and ethics is now often at the center of local, national and international  events and crises. Conference planners will consider papers and presentations on any relevant topic.  Some possible issues include: What are the limits of tolerance? Are there ways for opposing fundamentalisms to positively engage each other? What is the role of religion in thinking through the ethics of life and death in a secular society? Is there such a thing as a just war? What potential is there for a deeper conversation between Islamic and non-Islamic cultures? Is there enough common ground between religions to create a global ethic? Also papers applying ethical principles of a particular faith tradition are encouraged.
Papers and presentations from undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and community members are invited.
The conference will be held on the campus of Broome Community College. Please submit an abstract of 400-500 words, descriptions of proposed papers, presentations, music presentations are due by January 30, 2011. Final papers and presentations should be 20 minutes in length.
