Bringing the Community Together to Talk About Ethics

Conferences and workshops are a critical component in the process of sharing information, ideas, and lessons learned about the teaching and study of applied ethics accross the disciplines. The Ethics Center is committed to sponsoring events that encourage the exploration of ethics and advertising external conferences that are aligned with our Mission. Please reach out to us to see if we can help you plan an ethics-centered conference/workshop or bring something to one you've already developed.

Past Workshops

Seminar on Teaching Philosophy

In the fall of 2019, the Ethics Center brought in members from the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) to hold one of their renowned seminars on teaching philosophy. You can check out details of these sorts of seminars here. We strongly encourage philosophy departments to consider bringing the AAPT Seminar on Teaching Philosophy to a campus near you.

In the fall of 2019, one the Ethics Center's student groups hosted a conference on ethics and technology at the Jonny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts. You can check out details of the conference here and learn more about the RSO, Broader Considerations of Technology here.

Research Ethics Workshop: Promoting Ethics in Research

In the fall of 2008, the Ethics Center and the Association for Practical and Applied Ethics (APPE) co-sponsored a workshop on Promoting Ethics in Research. This workshop featured nationally recognized speakers- Michael Kalichman and Francis Macrina, former co-chairs of APPE's Responsible Conduct of Research Education Committee and drew an audience of researchers and educators from UNL and across the country.
We appreciate the support and interest from those who made this such a great event. We look forward to hosting more workshops like this in the future!
