Philosophy @ MIT -- Daniel Muñoz

Rights Workshop

Rights Workshop 2019

The 1st annual Rights Workshop will be at MIT on May 30-31, 2019. We are thrilled to announce our keynote: Frances Kamm (Rutgers). The event is organized by Samuel Dishaw (Harvard), Joseph Bowen (St. Andrews), and Daniel Muñoz (MIT/Monash), with generous support from the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy.
