Call for contributors: submit HERE your proposal by 31 July 2019
Dates: 24 – 25 October 2019
Location: Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU), Poznań, Poland
Type/tag: WG meeting
Short Description: Public arguments seem mangled between those who use them as tools for political strife, and those who use them as tools for technocratic governance. When it comes to safeguarding the public sphere for deliberation, what do contemporary theories of public argument offer? We welcome submissions treating norms for evaluating public argument — whether linguistic, epistemic, dialectical, moral, political, legal, ecological, or yet other — including submissions that deal not specifically with the climate change controversy.
Based on the meeting’s results and the position papers our workgroup is developing for the APPLY website, this WG2 meeting offers room for small groups to write parts of the state-of-the-art paper, the next Cost Action deliverable (due SEPT 2020).
We invite 7-10 participants from WG2 to contribute with a paper presentation. Please submit a proposal (about 300 words) at: https://forms.gle/EZY7NqEwVeXU3LmS8. Mariusz Urbanski, Frank Zenker and Jan Albert van Laar will select submissions based on relevance.
In addition, we invite two specialists on the topic (possibly following an external call for papers), as well as one member each from WG1 and WG3.
