CFI Online Workshop: Theme to be announced


Wed - Wed, Jun 16 to Jun 30, 8:00am - 8:00pm


Virtual: Details to be announced

CFI will hold its second annual workshop from June 16-30. The theme is "Climate Solutions, Money, and Politics". More details are available at the call for Abstracts (Deadline March 31)

From August 10-24, 2020, CFI held its inaugural asynchronous online workshop. Twelve authors from several disciplines presented short works in progress on the theme of “Bridging Gaps of Affluence, Nation and Time” in text or video form. Dedicated commentators, other authors and guests engaged and participated in extensive interdisciplinary discussions of papers on topics ranging from assigning legal rights to the Amazon rainforest, citizens’ political responsibilities regarding climate change, the ethics of procreation, and the distributive justice aspects of carbon capture and storage.

The asynchronous format was judged a success by most participants, with scholars from Australia, Colombia, the UK and North America able to discuss these topics of on their own schedule. Two synchronous meetings provided opportunities to interact in real time. The discussion was rich, with ~300 substantive posts across the twelve presentations. Several participants commented that being able to consider questions and responses carefully, rather than provide ad hoc responses, was very valuable to developing their work.

The list of presentations and authors from the 2020 workshop is here. As papers from the workshop are published you will be able to find links below. The archive of discussions is available to be viewed by non-participants by request. Email Ewan Kingston at with a brief description of your purpose to request access.
