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 support from the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. To attend, email me (munozd@mit.edu) so that I can send you the papers.

This year’s theme is the relation between rights and supererogation. Next year’s workshop is planned to be at the University of St Andrews.

Our keynote will be a standard talk with comments and Q&A.

All talks will be held in the Stata Center (Building 32), Room 144; refreshments will be provided right outside the room.
