Opening Discussions: An Online Conference
Our intellectual past is full of people whose philosophical thought has been discounted through prejudice and condescension in their own times or by the tellers of the history of philosophy. This Extending New Narratives/ Pour de nouveaux récits en histoire de la philosophie (ENN) Partnership’s international online conference aims to open discussions exploring the philosophies of some of these historically neglected figures and jumpstart efforts to retell the history of philosophy.
We invite official ENN collaborators as well as other scholars from around the world to submit proposals for sessions. We are particularly interested in drawing connections across historical periods along the themes of epistemic authority, moral dignity, equality, and nature. Deadline for receipt of proposals: January 3, 2021.
The event will be held on March 4, 5, 11, and 12, 2022, as a set of 2-2.5 hour sessions, planned to be convenient in different time zones.
