We are delighted to announce that Elad Uzan has been awarded the 2023 Baumgardt Memorial Fellowship. Elad will present the Baumgardt Memorial Lectures at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics in the spring of 2024.
The David Baumgardt Memorial Fellowship, administered by the American Philosophical Association, is awarded every 3 years to a candidate whose research has some bearing on the philosophical interests of the late David Baumgardt. More information here.
The APA Selection Committee said
Dr. Uzan’s project that aims at developing a moral and legal framework for the termination of conflict is timely and highly compelling. It is also extremely well-aligned with the prize mandate. Working broadly in the just war tradition, Dr. Uzan makes a persuasive case for considering time or duration as a factor in assessing the morality of armed conflict. It is hard to imagine a more fitting venue for Dr. Uzan’s Baumgardt Memorial lectures on the ethics of ending wars than Oxford University’s Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics.
Elad Uzan is a Junior Research Fellow in Philosophy at Corpus Christi College, and a Marie Curie Fellow in the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford. He completed his PhD at Tel Aviv University. His work is centered primarily on issues at the intersection of moral, political, and legal philosophy. More details about the prize can be found here.
More information on the lectures to follow soon!
