Epistemic Vices and Ignorance

Recently, there has been renewed interest in ignorance, and in particular, what it is about an epistemic agent that prevents them from acquiring knowledge or from taking acquired knowledge into account in their actions. We invite contributions dealing with questions like what such epistemic vices are (habits, character traits, …); what sorts of ignorance there are (ignorance that, ignorance how, 2nd order ignorance,…); what sort of epistemic vice entails what sort of ignorance; whether, and if so, when and how ignorance can or should be overcome; how to deal with insurmountable ignorance; how externalists vs internalists about knowledge deal with ignorance, etc.
