During a year of doomscrolling, organizing, and rising up, some philosophers were fighting the good fight within the academy. Instead of spinning twitter’s tired cultural takes in academese or courting analytic philosophy’s own cultural demons, they were writing about the hard problems facing feminist philosophy today. So, we brought them together for a workshop devoted to the study of a particular epistemology—one that examines the disparate knowledge production processes of the powerless and the powerful and is invested in building power from below. 

We hope you join us on Friday, December 18, 2020, at our virtual workshop to dig into solidarity, false consciousness, and ideology critique, the themes of our three panels, featuring papers by Chloé de Canson, Lidal Dror, and Rosie Worsdale, and comments by Robin Zheng, Olúfẹ́mi Táíwò and Sally Haslanger, followed by a roundtable discussion. You can register attinyurl.com/epistemologybelow2020.

Links and schedule will be provided upon registration. While we hope that you can attend all three panels and the roundtable discussion to follow, it's OK to register even if you can only make part of the day. 

In solidarity,

Ege Yumușak (Harvard) & Nicolas Côté (LSE)


P.S. Hope you’re all staying positive and testing negative!
