Public Philosophy Workshop
May 18, 2018 @ 1:45 pm - May 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
|UNC Public Philosophy Workshop
All are warmly invited to attend.
Keynote speakers will include Anita L. Allen (Henry Silverman Professor of Law and Philosophy, and Vice Provost for Faculty at UPenn), David V. Johnson (Senior Editor at Stanford Social Innovation Review, former Opinion Editor at Al Jazeera and Web Editor at the Boston Review), Myisha Cherry (UC Riverside; contributor to Salon, HuffPo, and LA Times; hosts for popular UnMute podcast), and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics at Duke University and editor of OUP’s monograph series in public philosophy).
The event centrally consists in workshop sessions in which participants will offer critical responses to each other’s work with the assistance of our keynote speakers. In between workshop sessions, our keynote speakers will offer presentations on different aspects of public philosophy. We will round up the workshop with an ‘open slather’ panel session — an informal Q&A with workshop participants and keynote speakers, addressing questions that emerged throughout the workshop.
