Dr. Rebecca Glover organizes annual moral education conference

Registration is now open for the 38th Annual Meeting of the Association for Moral Education (AME) November 8-10 in San Antonio, Texas. The conference planning committee is chaired by Dr. Rebecca J. Glover, Associate Professor in Educational Psychology in UNT’s College of Education.

The 2012 conference theme is Civility and Incivility: Respectful Disagreement in a Divided World.  Civility as a topic of inquiry addresses the ability to work and live together while respecting ideological, political, interpersonal, and cultural differences. Presentations and discussions at this conference will explore some topics that divide philosophers, psychologists, educators, as well as people, nations, and families. The AME is the only professional development organization focused on moral reasoning.

Speakers include Don Reed, Gerald Torres, Aletha Huston and Jonathan Haidt, the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at the New York University Stern School of Business and author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion. Haidt has been featured on The Colbert Report, TED, Moyers & Company and will deliver the Kohlberg Memorial Lecture as well as participate in a formal discussion session with other members of AME.

Registration is open to the public and this conference may be of particular interest to philosophers, psychologists, developmentalists, academics, students, public school teachers and counselors.
