“Philosophy and Poverty”, a new fully peer-reviewed book series published by Springer. The first volume is scheduled to be published in 2018. The book series is edited by Henning Hahn, Gottfried Schweiger and Clemens Sedmak, whose work is supported by an international Advisory Board. It is the first book series to focus exclusively on philosophical research on poverty, which is an area of increasing interest and high social and political importance. The book series is not restricted to issues of ethics and justice which dominate the philosophical research on poverty, but is also open to questions related to the philosophy of science, epistemology or history of philosophy insofar as they relate to poverty.
Arendt Studies is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of the life, work and legacy of Hannah Arendt. It publishes original research articles, review essays and books reviews, and welcomes contributions from all relevant areas, including philosophy, politics and international relations, history, Jewish studies, women’s and gender studies, postcolonial theory, and literary theory. The Journal is particularly interested in the philosophical dimensions of Arendt’s work and how they might illuminate pressing issues in philosophy, politics and society today.
The editors are now accepting submissions for the first volume of Arendt Studies, which is scheduled to appear in the fall of 2017. See the Arendt Studies website for information on submission procedures:

MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory
7th – 9th September 2016
Conveners: Michael Bennett (University of York) & Jonathan Benson (University of Manchester)
This workshop aims to stimulate a productive dialogue between those working on epistemic arguments for and against democracy and the market. We welcome papers focused exclusively on epistemic democracy, papers focused exclusively on epistemic arguments for markets, and papers which bring the two debates together.
Alongside the tradition of epistemic democracy there is an opposing tradition, including Hayekian economics, of epistemic arguments for markets. Both traditions reject idealised epistemic assumptions such as normative certainty and agreement (common in ideal theorising about justice) and perfect information (common in neoclassical economics). Instead, epistemic perspectives take the reality of ignorance and uncertainty as the starting point for institutional design, and place the creation, communication and use of knowledge at the centre of their analysis.
