Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy Conference 2017
University of Tasmania, Hobart
November 28 – December 1, 2017
The 2017 annual conference of the Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy (ASCP) will take place at the University of Tasmania’s Sandy Bay Campus, 29 November – 1 December, with a dedicated day for postgraduate development and the opening reception on 28 November. The ASCP provides a broad intellectual forum for scholars working within, or in communication with, European philosophical traditions. Its annual conference is the largest event devoted to continental philosophy in Australasia. For the 2017 conference, we seek to challenge commonplace understandings of the boundaries of scholarship in continental philosophy, with a particular focus on the role of feminist, postcolonial and ecological thought in transforming the key questions that drive philosophical inquiry.
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
- Lewis Gordon (University of Connecticut),
- Sigi Jöttkandt (University of New South Wales),
- Marguerite La Caze (University of Queensland), and
- Elaine Miller (Miami University)
There will be a plenary panel on the work of Moira Gatens (University of Sydney).
