Cambridge Moral Psychology Interdisciplinary Exchange of Ideas- Meets and Greet


The Moral Psychology Interdisciplinary Meet&Greet aims at bringing together researchers and students from different departments interested in moral psychology. We will have four discussion groups (see below) chaired by Cambridge researchers to allow for an intensive exchange. Participants will be invited to discuss theories and methods across disciplines and get answers from different fields to questions they are interested in. The second half of the M and G will be devoted to discussing the future of the Cambridge Moral Psychology Group. We'd be grateful to have your input.
This event is open to all. If you would like to attend please sign up here: http://goo.gl/forms/AA8zZmFqSm
