Philosophy @ MIT -- Daniel Muñoz

Rights Workshop

Rights Workshop 2019

The 1st annual Rights Workshop was held at MIT on May 30-31, 2019. Our distinguished keynote: Frances Kamm (Rutgers). The event was 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.

The theme in 2019 was rights and supererogation. The theme for 2020’s workshop, to be held at St Andrews, will be rights and harm. (The site for that event will go online by the end of 2019.)
