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.
