The international and interdisciplinary conference Dehumanization: New approaches to understanding the politics of human nature (Apr 06-09, 2016, Central European University, Budapest) brings historians, scientists, philosophers and artists together in order to discuss the phenomenon of dehumanization: that, how and why we treat some people as less human and what follows philosophically from it.
Interested scholars from history, psychology, cognitive science, philosophy and other relevant disciplines are invited to submit abstracts of 500 to 750 words by Oct 30, 2015. Please send them to Zsofia Jeney-Domingues for triple blind review.
