Olivia Bailey to participate in 2016 Virtue and Happiness Seminar

Philosophy graduate student Olivia Bailey will join twenty-five early career academics and advanced doctoral students for the June 2016 Summer Seminar in “Virtue and Happiness” offered by Virtue, Happiness, and the Meaning of Life and held at Moreau Seminary at the University of Notre Dame.

The seminar is supported by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation and one of the program’s institutional partners, the Jacques Maritain Center. Led by faculty members Owen Flanagan (Duke), Jennifer Frey (South Carolina), Darcia Narvaez (Notre Dame), Michael Sherwin, O.P. (Fribourg), and Candace Vogler (Chicago), the seminar aims “to involve participants in our innovative and collaborative research framework” within the areas of Philosophy, Psychology, and Theology/Religious Studies.

Bailey, whose work embraces ethics, epistemology, and aesthetics in early modern philosophy, has recently presented part of her work—a paper entitled “Adam Smith’s Double Standard?”—at the Oxford Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy held on March 14-15, 2016. In May of 2016, Bailey will present another paper, “The Moral Significance of Imaginative Recreation,” at the NASEP 2016 Conference at the Manhattan campus of St. John’s University.
