Purdue University Graduate Conference

Inclusive Philosophies

April 13 - 14, 2018 at Purdue University

This conference aims to encourage diverse dialogues and provide a forum for philosophic work that is often undervalued by the canon or that connects the canon to broader contexts outside of philosophy ‘proper.’ In particular, we are interested in interrogating the concepts of diversity within the field (see Anderson and Erlenbusch 2017). Often diversity initiatives focus on increasing the number of underrepresented persons rather than on changing the field such that individuals with diverse experiences are included, interested, and welcomed. We hope that this conference offers a space for transformation, as well as an opportunity for thinking about how we can collectively work toward such change.

You can find the full conference schedule here.

The conference is sponsored by the Department of Philosophy, College of Liberal Arts, Philosophy & Literature Program, LGBTQ Center, Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Department of Sociology, 'Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies', School of Languages & Cultures, Department of English, Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and Public Policy & Research Institute. Thank you for your support!
