Epistemic Injustice, Recognition Failures, and Social Movements
Campus am Griebnitzsee
Recently, there has been increasing interest in the relation between epistemic injustice and the concept of recognition. The main idea is that practices of silencing and epistemic exclusion have consequences that go well beyond the epistemic dimension and that influence our social practices of giving respect, esteem, and love. The conference is part of the DFG-funded research network on the relation between recognition theory and theories of epistemic injustice, which aims to shed light on the relation of theories of epistemic injustice, oppression, and violence and recognition theory, and to bring together questions of the normative status of knowers with research on standpoints, ideology, and social movements.
The conference is planned for three consecutive days and seeks to analyze the ways in which social movements can enlighten theories of recognition and epistemic injustice and their relation to each other as well as the ways in which theories of recognition and epistemic justice can help understand claims made by social movements.
The conference will be in person. To attend the conference, please sign up until April 30 on the conference site.
Part of the three-day-conference is a panel discussion on May 6, 2023 with Robin Celikates, Daniel Loick, Candice Delmas, Nathan Rochelle DuFort, and Jacob Blumenfeld on the topic of activism and philosophy. The panel discussion is open to anyone interested and will take place at Aquarium (Berlin, close to Kottbusser Tor). Admission for the panel discussion starts at 5.00pm, the actual discussion at 6.00pm
