Workshop 'Silencing, Prejudice and Resistance'
Date: 24th June 2019
Place: University of Stirling
Keynote Speaker: Prof Mari Mikkola (Oxford)
Call for Applications
Deadline for submission: 30th April 2019
The Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) chapter of the joint programme in Philosophy of the University of Stirling and University of St Andrews (SASP) invite applications for engaged participants in the one-day workshop ‘Silencing, Prejudice and Resistance’, featuring philosophical talks related to this theme. This includes but is not limited to work in:
- Feminist Philosophy
- Feminist and Social Epistemology
- Epistemic Virtues and Vices in Academy
- Gender and Oppression
- Diversifying Philosophy
- Public Philosophy
- Inclusive Pedagogy
We especially encourage applications from underrepresented groups in philosophy. Each talk will last for approximately 30 minutes, followed by 20 minutes for discussion.
At the end of the conference, all conference attendees are invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on ‘Activism and Philosophy’. Our aim is to bring together representatives of MAP chapters across UK universities and beyond to share our activist experience, to forge new ideas and develop collaborative projects in the future to advance the objective of the MAP initiative. We also hope to connect marginalised philosophers across the country, especially in areas with no active MAP chapters.
- Anonymized abstracts of approximately 500 words should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th April.
- Submissions should be accompanied by a separate cover sheet including the author’s name, affiliation, and contact information. All submissions will be double-blind refereed. Decisions will be announced by 13th May.
*If you are not interested in giving a talk but would like to participate in our roundtable discussion, please send in a short statement (up to 300 words) of your relevant experience or interest in activism broadly construed.
We hope to offer support to partially cover travel expenses for speakers and participants of the roundtable discussion. Priority will be given to students without institutional support from their home universities. Please specify in the email whether you would like to be considered for a partial bursary.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com
The event is sponsored by the Scots Philosophical Assocation, the Marc Sanders Foundation and the University of Stirling.
