Call for Papers

ISUS 2020 (Utility and Politics)


The 16th conference of the International Society for Utilitarian Studies

University of Illinois at Chicago, 30 July–1 August 2020 (Thursday–Saturday)


In a time when the regimes of democratic representation and scientific/administrative expertise that the classical utilitarians did so much to promote are under serious strain across the globe, ISUS 2020 will meet to assess the past, present, and future achievements and failures of utilitarian ethics, law, policy, and political economy. Although we invite paper and panel proposals on all subjects related to the study of utilitarianism, proposals that speak to the conference theme Utility and Politics are especially welcome.


Keynote lectures:

• Frances Ferguson, Department of English, The University of Chicago.

• Bart Schultz, Department of Philosophy, The University of Chicago.

• Sharon Street, Department of Philosophy, New York University.


The International Society for Utilitarian Studies is an association for the study of utilitarianism and the utilitarian tradition broadly conceived. Scholars representing all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to submit proposals for papers and panels on utilitarianism and its historical development, and on its contemporary relevance in various fields of thought and practice.


To submit a c. 400-word paper or panel proposal, please watch isus2020.uchicago.edu


Deadline: 15 February, responses by mid-April.
