The Political Epistemology Network will be hosting a group session at the Pacific APA in San Francisco (April 8-11, 2020). Any paper at the intersection of political philosophy and epistemology will be considered. For example, some possible themes include:
The role of truth and/or knowledge in politics
Misinformation, manipulation, propaganda
Trust in expertise (for political purposes)
The political significance of ignorance
Epistemic Evaluations of Democracy
We especially encourage papers that engage with contemporary debates on these themes.
Please submit a 500 word abstract, prepared for blind review, to email@example.com with the subject line: PEN-Pacific APA 2020.
Submissions are due by September 1st. Please do not submit a duplicate of any paper you are also submitting to the main program.
