Miranda Fricker in the introduction to Epistemic Injustice states that “justice is one of the oldest and most central themes of philosophy, but sometimes we would do well to focus instead on injustice.” This conference seeks to interrogate the notion of (in)justice in the ancient world, and its reception, in the broadest possible way: we wish to encourage broad approaches to the concept of ‘injustice’ and the geographical and temporal limits of the ‘ancient world’. In what ways have ancient thinkers sought to define or ground justice and injustice? How has ancient ethical thought been used to justify just or unjust acts? What injustices are found in the scholarship of ancient philosophy, both historically and within the field today? These are some ways we are hoping participants approach the theme. We encourage postgraduate and early career scholars to apply, as well as applicants from underrepresented groups in ancient philosophy and classics. Our aim is to create space for dialogue that includes those who are often excluded in the bounds of western philosophy.
In order to ensure a wide variety of applicants and speakers from outside the UK and Europe the conference will be hybrid, held virtually on Zoom and in person at the Faculty of Classics in Cambridge on March 17th and 18th 2023. Keynote speakers include Mary Margaret McCabe and Shaul Tor.
