Paper proposals are due by March 1, 2016. UPDATE (March 4, 2016): The submission deadline has been extended to March 18, 2016.

The terms “vulnerability” and “social justice” have been used with increasing frequency in recent years.Both are often invoked in alternative, sometimes incompatible ways.In this workshop we are interested in exploring what these terms mean, individually and in relation to each other, in everyday,political, and professional usage, as well as their potential as “terms of art” for furthering substantive progressive change.
