The Symposium on Discrimination and Subordination will be held at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law and Centre for Ethics on November 15-16, 2019.  It will bring together philosophers from North America, the U.K., Denmark and Australia who write about discrimination, subordination, and requirements of equal respect, as well as legal scholars writing on legal issues related to discrimination, in particular, the potentially discriminatory impact of algorithms.

The Symposium will include an "Author Meets Critics” session at the Centre for Ethics on Friday November 15, to discuss Sophia Moreau’s forthcoming book, Faces of Inequality: A Theory of Wrongful Discrimination.  It will also include papers presented by Benjamin Eidelson, Deborah Hellman, Niko Kolodny, Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen, Gina Schouten, and Daniel Viehoff, and a Graduate Student Panel at which Ph.D. students from N.Y.U., Cornell, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Toronto, will present their work in progress.

The Symposium is generously funded by the joint University of Toronto Faculty of Arts and Science and Faculty of Law Conference Fund, by the Faculty of Law, by the University Centre for Ethics, and by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Information will be added as it becomes available.
