The Moral Agency Workshop is an interdisciplinary working group that brings together faculty and graduate students from a diverse range of disciplines to study ethics and morality. In particular, we focus on why and how do people behave in moral and ethical ways?   We discuss psychological foundations for the development and sustenance of moral agency, and philosophical conditions for moral agency and responsibility. Currently, our members include faculty and students from psychology, philosophy, political science, sociology, communication and media studies, marketing, bioethics, and anthropology. If you have an interest in empirically and philosophically informed approaches to these questions, we invite you to join!  The workshop will meet every month over coffee at the Rock Ethics Institute, with meeting times and topics announced below. Our meetings involve both assigned readings and members workshopping in-progress ideas that would be usefully and constructively informed by interdisciplinary feedback.  This group is designed to encourage active interdisciplinary discussion, and foster the development of grant applications and research projects that transcend traditional boundaries.
