Ethics of War and Peace Conference
The USMA Department of English and Philosophy will host the 2021 Ethics of War and Peace Conference October 13-16. The theme of this year’s conference, which will be held both at West Point and online, is “The War On Terror Then And Now: Twenty Years After 9/11.” The United States announced a Global War on Terror in the wake of September 11, 2001, taking various shapes over the last 20 years. This conference will reflect on the ethical dimensions of the history of this war, its current state, and its possible futures. Ethically (and pragmatically), there seem to be limits to what military power can do regarding terrorism. Please click here to register.
