SMASH Workshop: The cognitive bases of moral diversity

We would like to invite you to our workshop The Cognitive Bases of Moral Diversity. Organized in the frames of SMASH PRO, an interdisciplinary PhD training and research program at the Central European University, we have organized a series of three connected seminars exploring the cultural and cognitive bases of moral phenomena:

Seminar 1 (24 Sept ’21; 16:00 – 18:00 CET): 
Moral reasoning and social inequality
Seminar 2 (1 Oct ’21; 17:00 – 19:00 CET): 
Social conventions and moral norms
Seminar 3 (8 Oct ’21;16:00 – 18:00 CET): 
Cultural transmission of moral dispositions

The workshop will be held in a full-online format, via Zoom. Each seminar will be led by 3 speakers presenting their work on the  topic, and a discussant bringing the talks together. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and start discussions after this. Each session will be held on one afternoon of the week, with an online discussion forum on Slack to string them together. We are fortunate to have the following lineup of speakers & discussants, all brilliant researchers in their fields:

Seminar 1:
