About The Annual SEAC Conference

The Annual Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum Conference is the preeminent opportunity for those of us working in ethics education, and in integrating ethics into the broader curriculum, to gather to share ideas, present our latest research, demonstrate pedagogical experiments, and network with each other, all in the spirit of conviviality. New members and graduate students are most welcome, as is anyone interested in this important work.

Call for Papers

The submission deadline for the 2019 conference at Villanova University is August 30, 2019.

2019 International Conference on Ethics Across the Curriculum

Host Info:

Conference Theme

Theme: Race & Justice in America 

Keynote speakers:

  • Lawrence Krasner, District Attorney for Philadelphia

  • Professor George Yancy, Philosophy, Emory University


Registration is through the Philosophy Documentation Center.

Member rate: $100
Non-Member rate: $160
Graduate Student rate: $50

The registration rate only covers expenses. We make no profit from our conferences, and last year, for the first time, we had a number of people whose papers were accepted, but failed to show and register. We had to cover their costs for meals and refreshments. Rather than raise our rate to pay for those who do not show, you must register by October 3 to remain on the program. There will be no registration onsite.
