NHSEBAcademy Live Town Hall: Moral Status at the Margins

December 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us this December for an NHSEBAcademy Live Town Hall event: Moral Status at the Margins. This event will feature a moderated panel discussion with moral philosophers working at the cutting edge of issues of moral status and the expansion of the moral community.

Conversation will focus on those questions about moral status which might arise in this year’s NHSEB Regional Case Set, including those raised by “I’m Afraid.” and “Happy to Be Alone.” After a brief initial conversation, panelists will take questions from the NHSEB community, moderated in real time by the Parr Center team. Advance registration is free, but required.
