The Kenan Institute for Ethics invites proposals for up to $20,000 for new, interdisciplinary scholarly projects in ethics broadly conceived. The CFP is open to projects with at least three regular rank faculty at Duke University, and aims to generate new confluences of collaborative faculty scholarship both in fields of long standing scholarly import and in emerging areas of ethical inquiry. Proposals grappling with any significant ethical or normative questions from any discipline are encouraged to apply. Theoretical and empirical and projects both welcome. Proposals might be for ongoing discussions, working groups, workshops, symposia or direct research expenses. Proposals that have the greatest potential for the development of a new long-term scholarly research agenda and that include robust graduate student engagement will be prioritized.
For more information, see the CFP (pdf). Proposals must be submitted by September 30 and a faculty review committee will make decisions by October 15.
