Wie Public Reason just vermeldet, wird es auch in diesem Jahr in Pavia wieder eine Graduierendenkonferenz im Feld Politische Theorie geben. Ab sofort und bis zum 29. Mai ist es möglich, ein kurzes Paper samt Abstract einzureichen. Die Konferenz ist dann im September. Ein eingrenzendes Motto gibt es nicht, aber vielleicht ist von Interesse, dass Gerald Gaus und Anna Elisabeth Galeotti als Keynote Speaker präsent sein werden.

On the 22nd and 23rd of September 2011, the Human Development, Capability and Poverty International Research Centre of the Institute for Advanced Study of Pavia and the Faculty of Political Science of the University of Pavia (Italy), under the joint patronage of the Italian Society for Political Philosophy and the Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy, will host the 9th edition of the Pavia Graduate Conference in Political Philosophy. This two-day conference is meant to offer graduate students an opportunity to present papers, get helpful feedback in a friendly atmosphere, and exchange ideas both with peers and with leading academics in the field of political philosophy. In addition to parallel sessions devoted to students’ presentations, there will also be two plenary sessions. Plenary speakers in past editions have been: Hillel Steiner, Peter Jones, Gianfrancesco Zanetti, Jonathan Wolff, Michele Nicoletti, Philippe Van Parijs, Sebastiano Maffettone, Giovanni Giorgini, Andrew Williams, David Miller, Alessandro Ferrara, Michael Otsuka, Nadia Urbinati, Valeria Ottonelli, Adam Swift. This year’s keynote speakers will be:
Anna Elisabetta Galeotti (Università del Piemonte Orientale, Vercelli), speaking on Autonomy and Double Standards
Gerald Gaus (University of Arizona), speaking on Public Reason as an Equilibrium Concept
Graduate students interested in giving papers should send their contributions (max 2500/3000 words – in English) accompanied by an abstract (max 300 words – in English) and a short CV, by Sunday 29th May 2011. Papers may focus on any area within political philosophy, and presentations should take no longer than twenty minutes to allow at least another twenty minutes of discussion. Please note that the 29th of May is also the deadline for registration for anyone who wishes to attend the conference without presenting a paper.
