I am inviting papers on the topic of epistemic injustice broadly conceived, including testimonial injustice, hermeneutical injustice and ignorance, either applied to a case study of collective wrongdoing such as crimes against humanity, or more general theoretical and conceptual issues related to epistemic injustice.

Please note that submissions that do not fulfil the abovementioned formal requirements will not be considered.

(Partial) travel funding is available for students/early career researchers, which will be fairly distributed according to needs and applications.
