Overview
The Prindle Post, an online ethics magazine from The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics, is seeking expert scholars to write concise explanatory articles that focus on elucidating the underlying moral issues raised by current events and popular culture. The ideal contributor will be someone with a graduate degree or a graduate student in a field that focuses, at least in part, on studying ethics (e.g. philosophy).

Responsibilities

  • Contribute an “Ethics in the News” or “Ethics in Culture” piece approximately once every two weeks. These are 500-1000 word articles that explain the underlying moral issue or issues raised by a current event or some aspect of our culture.

Compensation: $1,200/year

Qualifications

  • Have a graduate degree, or be working toward graduate degree, in philosophy, ethics, or a related field in which ethics is a significant component.

  • Be broadly familiar with the wide variety of morally relevant features and be good at identifying morally relevant features when they arise

  • Be able to clearly and succinctly articulate arguments for and against moral opinions. Of particular importance is being able to identify potential objections to widely shared moral opinions that most people might not immediately recognize.

Ethics in the News/Culture

The Prindle Post aims to be different from other explanatory news sites by delving deeper into the underlying moral issues that make a news story newsworthy or that make some aspect of our culture thought provoking.

An ideal piece will

  • Clearly articulate one or more moral issues/questions raised by the focus piece

  • Clearly articulate what some of the core morally relevant features are

  • Clearly articulate reasons/arguments for and against the moral
