Call for Papers: Workshop on Recognition and Poverty, U of Salzburg, 15 & 16 November 2018, Invited speaker: David Ingram (Loyola University Chicago)

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.

This workshop hopes to contribute to the ongoing and expanding debate about recognition in ethics, political and social philosophy by focusing on poverty, which is one highly important social and global challenge. Contributions from social and political theory are also welcomed as are papers that combine conceptual and empirical work.?

Call for Papers: Workshop: Spatial In/justice: Linking Perspectives from Geography and Philosophy

Call for Papers: Workshop: Spatial In/justice: Linking Perspectives from Geography and Philosophy

organized by Andreas Koch (Social Geography, Salzburg) and Gottfried Schweiger (Political Philosophy, Salzburg)

13. & 14 September 2018, University of Salzburg

Part of the 2018 Salzburg Conference in Interdisciplinary Poverty Research on Space and Poverty

Website: https://www.poverty-conference.org/workshop-on-spatial-injustice.html

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion and exchange of ideas and knowledge between geography and philosophy on issues of spatial in/justice. Spatial in/justice is certainly of high interest to both disciplines, whether it be in the form of poverty, inequality, exclusion, marginalization or oppression or issues of rights, morality, agency or knowledge production regarding spaces. Both disciplines have produced valuable insights on these issues over the last decades and yet it seems as if they are rather separated from each other. This workshop is dedicated to explore how geographical and philosophical concepts, theories, insights and methods can learn, enrich or even criticize each other to help us to better understand spatial in/justice but also to construct better practices and policies to overcome them. This workshop is open to several different conceptual and methodological approaches and theoretical backgrounds within geography and philosophy (e.g. Structuralism, Marxism, Critical Theory, Liberalism…).

CfP: New Springer Book Series: “Philosophy and Poverty”

“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.
