Integrity Lost, Integrity Gained: Social Conditions and Institutional Pressures, takes place at the Literary and Philosophical Society on Westgate Road, Newcastle on 11 and 12 April..

It will include discussions on the Reform of Public Life in the 19th Century Trans-Atlantic World, Recognition and Institutional Structures and Integrity in the Social Sciences.

The conference is organised by the Integrity Project, a group which explores the psychological, social, institutional and political preconditions for acting and speaking with integrity. The event features contributions from University of York academics Dr Tom O’Shea, Dr James Clarke and Owen Hullatt.

Co-organiser Dr Amber Carpenter, of the Department of Philosophy at York, said: “The conference aims to integrate academic work and everyday, practical concerns for anyone who lives and works within social and institutional structures.”

The Project is staging a second international conference, Saints and Madmen: Integrity at its Limits, co-hosted by the Einstein Forum in Berlin on 4-6 June.
