The Institute for Ethics & Society at The University of Notre Dame Australia is delighted to host the 2020 Notre Dame School of Virtue & Character.

Held over two weeks (29 September – 8 October 2020), the conference provides participants with the opportunity to deeply engage with new research on the topic of cultivating good character.

The Notre Dame School of Virtue & Character features six keynote sessions, each running for 1.5 hours. The sessions are structured around a pre-read paper, and provide participants with the opportunity to engage directly with the speakers in a rigorous discussion of their work.

We welcome applications for participation via email. Due to COVID-19, the conference will be held on Zoom.

The conference will focus on two topics:

1.      New accounts of overlooked virtues and vices, and

2.      Practical questions related to how institutions can be designed to foster virtue.
The six keynote speakers are:

·        Professor Heather Battaly (University of Connecticut)

·        Professor Christian B. Miller (Wake Forest University)

·        Professor C. Stephen Evans (Baylor University)

·        Assistant Professor Michael Lamb​ (Wake Forest University)
