Dear colleagues,

You may be interested in an upcoming workshop at the University of Sydney on October 20th: Expanding the Canon – Challenges, Methods and Prospects, organised by Dalia Nassar.

The event will be a mixture of a master-class, with the Distinguished Anderson Fellow, Kristin Gjesdal, and a discussion on writing in the history of philosophy.

The first part of the day (9am-1pm) will be the master-class. It is open to honours and post-graduate students, and will involve careful reading and discussion of texts by Germaine de Stäel.

The second part of the day (1pm-6pm) will be a panel discussion with scholars from across the history of philosophy, including Jacqueline Broad (Monash), Emily Hulme (Sydney), Michela Manson (Monash), Dalia Nassar (Sydney), and Anik Waldow (Sydney). The speakers will discuss large methodological and meta-theoretical questions concerning “how to do history of philosophy,” and, more specifically, how to do history of philosophy on lesser-known or neglected figures, focusing on a) the challenges they have faced, b) the skills they have developed to meet these challenges, and c) where things stand today in terms of the philosophical canon and what work – within philosophy as a discipline and philosophical culture more generally – remains to be done.

Registration to this event is recommended as we will only have 25 places.

Please circulate widely.
