15 & 16 November 2018 2018 Workshop on Recognition and Poverty
The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of Salzburg is happy to announce the call for papers for a workshop on "Recognition and Poverty". The workshop will be held at the University of Salzburg on 15 and 16 November 2018.
The invited speaker for this workshop is David Ingram (Loyola University Chicago), who will give a talk on "Misrecognition and Divided Agency: Does Micro-Finance Empower Women?".
The overall aim of this workshop is to bring together papers that explore the relation of recognition and poverty, and how (critical) theories of recognition can be utilized to enhance our understanding, evaluation and critique of poverty and social inequalities. This also includes issues of recognition in the production of poverty knowledge and in poverty research. Another possible topic is the relation of recognition to other critical normative concepts such as reification, alienation or invisibility in respect to issues of poverty. Furthermore, papers can explore anti-poverty policies, development aid and duties towards the (global) poor. Critical examinations of reflections on poverty and related issues in the work of past and present thinkers of recognition (e.g. Fichte, Hegel, Kojeve, Fanon, Taylor, Fraser, Honneth) are welcomed.
The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will have 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion). Draft papers are shared in advance and speakers can focus on the key points of their paper in the oral presentation. A peer-reviewed publication of selected papers is envisaged in an edited volume on the workshop topic in the Springer Book Series Philosophy and Poverty. We expect that participants consider this option to publish their paper presented at the Workshop.
There is no conference fee. Coffee breaks and two lunches will be covered by the CEPR. Unfortunately we cannot offer any subsidy for travel and accommodation costs.
If you are interested in participating please submit an extended abstract of 750 words ready for blind review (in a .doc or .odt file) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submissions is 1 May 2018, and decisions will be communicated within two weeks after this deadline. It is expected that draft versions of the papers are shared two weeks before the workshop.
If you have any question about the workshop please contact Gottfried Schweiger at email@example.com
