Purdue University Graduate Conference

Inclusive Philosophies

April 21 - 22, 2017 at Purdue University

This conference aims to encourage diverse dialogues and provide a forum for areas of philosophy that are often undervalued by the canon or that connect the canon to broader contexts outside of philosophy ‘proper.’ The conference will highlight the work of two feminist philosophers and 30 graduate students.

The conference is sponsored by the Philosophy Department Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, Department of English, Department of Philosophy, Philosophy and Literature Program, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and College of Liberal Arts. Thank you for your support!
