The 1st Latinx Philosophers Conference is an initiative of some Latin American PhD candidates in the Columbia Philosophy Department. We hope to initiate a tradition of annual conferences to serve the following ends. First, to foster the creation and development of a Latinx Philosophers Network in the United States. This network, in turn, will help us provide a space for camaraderie and collaborative work, as well as identify and pursue the common interests of Latinx Philosophers in the U.S. Second, to provide a space for discussing issues of particular relevance to Latinxs from a philosophical perspective.

The conference will take place on April 29-30 and will be organized around two clusters of topics. The first day will be devoted to issues in Epistemology, Logic, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Language. The second day will focus on Ethics, Aesthetics, Social and Political Philosophy, Feminist Philosophy, Philosophy of Race, and Latin American Philosophy. Papers on philosophical topics other than the ones listed here will be considered too. We are happy to announce that Otávio Bueno and Jorge Gracia will be our keynote speakers for each day, respectively. 

Any questions can be directed to César Cabezas ([email protected]), Mariana Noé ([email protected]), or Ignacio Ojea ([email protected]).
