Dear colleagues,
You may be interested in attending an upcoming workshop at the University of Sydney on October 20th: ‘Expanding the Canon – Challenges, Methods and Prospects’, organised by Dalia Nassar. Please note: the second half of the event will now be streamed online via Zoom.

The first part of the day (9am-1pm) will be a master-class with the Distinguished Anderson Fellow, Kristin Gjesdal. It is open to honours and post-graduate students, and will involve careful reading and discussion of texts by Germaine de Stäel. This event is only available to attend in-person.

The second part of the day (1:30 – 5:30pm AEDT) will be streamed via Zoom. This afternoon workshop will be a panel discussion with scholars from across the history of philosophy, including Kristin Gjesdal (Temple), Jacqueline Broad (Monash), Emily Hulme (Sydney), Michaela Manson (Monash),  Laura Kotevska (Sydney), 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.

If you wish to receive the Zoom link for the afternoon workshop, please leave your email via the following form: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/lNeaCvl1rKiEJ4gmNsQoaN4?domain=forms.gle
