This work in progress seminar is an opportunity for graduate students from all departments whose work has an applied ethics dimension to present draft papers or thesis chapters for constructive comments and discussion with other graduate students, led by members of staff from the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics.

Session times and venues for subsequent terms will be announced prior to the start of each term. Please email to be added to the mailing list to receive the programme and papers, or to present.

Each week two students will have the opportunity to present a paper, and two students will respond to the papers presented.  Papers are circulated a week in advance via email.  Students will be given 10-15 minutes for their presentations, respondents will have 5-10 minutes to discuss the paper, followed by an open group discussion for the remainder of the hour.

The presenting and respondent spaces are issued on a first come first served basis so please email ASAP to ensure you get a space.  Responding to papers is as important an aspect of the seminar as presenting.
