Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the Eurasian Memory Meeting, an in-person workshop to be held at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) in Taipei, 15-17 March, 2024.

One valuable feature of the philosophy of memory community is its genuinely international character. Due to geographical constraints, however, there has been less interaction between philosophers of memory in Europe and philosophers of memory in Asia than would be desirable.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together Asian and European researchers for a workshop with an explicitly Eurasian character on all aspects of philosophy of memory.

Please see below for the list of confirmed speakers, and for information about the organisers. Full details, including how to register, can be found on the workshop webpage.
