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.?
