Integrating Research on Character and Virtues: 10 Years of Impact


In addition to celebrating the first decade of work in the Jubilee Centre and taking stock of the impact that it has had, the main aim of this conference is to explore the merits and demerits of cross-disciplinarity in the character-and-virtue research field(s). Among the big questions that emerge here are: How amenable are the different research traditions of philosophy and social science to crossover work? How easy is it to integrate the foci on what a virtue ‘is’ (philosophy) and how it is ‘experienced’ (psychology) with how it can be ‘cultivated in educational settings’ (education)? Have academics and practitioners been able to communicate effectively, and how can such communication be enhanced?

The aim of the 2022 Jubilee Centre anniversary conference is to bring together experts from a range of disciplines to explore those questions and many more. Can theorists from philosophy, education, sociology, theology, history and psychology cross the traditional barbed wire between the disciplines and learn from each other’s work? How can insights from theory and practice be integrated?
