Call for Participation | Normative Energy Ethics Workshop | deadline 15 Sept

                Dear all,

From 23 to 25 November 2021, the research group "Philosophy of Engineering,
Technology Assessment and Science" at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
is hosting a workshop on normative energy ethics:

We warmly invite applications for participation via this registration
form until
15 September 2021.

We envision energy ethics as a space to develop systematic theoretical
investigations capable of analyzing energy systems, infrastructures,
technologies, and policies, evaluating stakeholders' values, judging the
ethical merit of energy related choices, actions, and decisions. Moreover, we
propose that reflections in energy ethics should also be able to evaluate
courses of action morally. In this workshop, we would like to explore together
how normative ethical perspectives may help address different energy issues
and potentially anticipate ethical and socio-ecological problems. We are
interested in discussing several perspectives, including but not limited to:

  *   Capabilities Approach
  *   Care Ethics
  *   Virtue Ethics
  *   Mobility Justice
  *   Energy Sufficiency
  *   Environmental, Climate, and Energy Justice

We plan an engaged and interactive event, consisting of a few presentations
and many opportunities for discussions and networking, with participation of
up to 50 people.
We will likely organize this workshop according to a hybrid format that allows
both in person and online participation.
For questions, please contact:

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
Best regards,

The Organizing Team
Giovanni Frigo, Meike Hebich, Julia Merdes, Christine Milchram, Michael
Poznic, Michael Schmidt, Lorenzo Simone, Rafaela Hillerbrand
