Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
We are pleased to share the following CFP for the 3rd annual meeting of the Southeastern Association for the Continental Tradition (SEACT). Our meeting will be held in person and via Zoom April 8-9, 2022. Our host institution is New College of Florida in Sarasota, FL.
This Year’s Theme: “New Directions in Continental Philosophy”
Last year’s theme, “Time, Historicity, and Repetition: Continental Approaches to the History of Philosophy,” encouraged us to look to the past. With this year’s theme, “New Directions in Continental Philosophy,” we take aim at the future. What approaches, ideas, and figures comprise the future of continental philosophy? Why these directions and not others? What existing positions should be carried on in the tradition? Whose voices will (not) be heard? What impact can continental philosophy make in the 21st century and beyond?
SEACT invites both scholarly work and teaching pedagogy aimed at the undergraduate level as well as undergraduate submissions.
SEACT was created to provide a new space for scholars of continental philosophy living in the Southeast region to come together and share their work with one another. We aim to deliver a conference inclusive of myriad continental approaches, ideas, and figures. We are especially invested in the growth of continental philosophy at the undergraduate level. The location of our annual meeting rotates among member institutions. Each meeting will be devoted to a particular theme agreed upon in advance by our members. As a way of building our new community, we suggest optional excursions as part of our time together at our annual meetings. We believe that philosophical community extends beyond the confines of the traditional conference format. For more information please see our website: https://seactphilosophy.wordpress.com/.
