2010 Conference: Environmental Ethics

J. Baird Callicott's Keynote Address, MPA Conference, Spring 2010, Mississippi State University, Starkville, MS.

In the 2009-2010 academic year, the MPA hosted its conference in the spring of 2010 at Mississippi State University on the subject of Environmental Ethics. The program chair was Dr. Trisha Phillips of the Department of Philosophy and Religion.

Dr. J. Baird Callicott, MPA Keynote Speaker, February 2010The Mississippi Philosophical Association (MPA) held its annual meeting on February 5-6, 2010 on the Mississippi State Campus in Starkville, MS.

Keynote speaker: Dr. J. Baird Callicott, Department of Philosophy and Religion Studies, University of North Texas. Click here for a nice photo of the turn out for Dr. Callicott's presentation.

This year’s theme was environmental ethics, broadly construed.  Each presenter was given 40 minutes on the program, of which 25-30 minutes were dedicated to the reading of the paper, with the other 10-15 minutes dedicated to participants' responses and questions.

While the MPA is a regional organization, we sought and had broad participation in this conference.
