The CUNY Social and Political Philosophy Working Group (SPP) serves as a forum for the discussion of works-in-progress from diverse approaches in any area of social and political philosophy or applied ethics, broadly construed.  We strive to build a community of scholars in a constructive, supportive environment for the development and improvement of our research and scholarship.  SPP welcomes students and faculty from any department at the Graduate Center for informal monthly workshops, and the occasional special event.
