The Annual Meeting is held each January and provides members the opportunity to present and discuss scholarly papers, review published works in the field, and conduct official business. Between 70 and 75 plenaries, papers and panels are presented over three days, in conjunction with the Society of Jewish Ethics (see website for information on membership) and the Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics (see site for information on membership)
Members, including ABD student members, are invited to submit proposals for papers each spring. The Society’s program committee rates the proposals (without knowing the names of the authors) on their scholarly promise and relevance to the field, with about 45% of the proposals resulting in papers presented at the annual meeting. Papers of those authors interested in publication are peer reviewed, and the strongest appear as articles in the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics.
Available Registrations & Submissions
Generally, proposals may be submitted online soon after the Annual Meeting, and registration for the next meeting opens in September. Proposal submissions for the 2014 annual meeting are currently being accepted until March 22, 2013. Links are available to submit or register online.
