Recent lectures & events
This two-day workshop features seven speakers and seven commentators on the intersection of virtue ethics and political philosophy, and notably on the issue of the relationship between the personal good and the common good.
Nassim Noroozi is a Visiting Lecturer at Concordia University. She is trained in Philosophy of Education. Her areas of research are ethics of resistance and decolonial philosophy of education. The talk will explore the nature of smear campaigns geared towards thinkers who commit to public engagements about war as an injustice. Linda Martín Alcoff will provide commentary via teleconference. Dr. Alcoff is Professor of Philosophy at Hunter College, City University of New York.
Dr. Hanne Jacobs is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Graduate Program at Loyola University Chicago. She has published articles on topics in phenomenology such as personhood, attention, rationality, and phenomenological method. Her current research interest is in theories of knowledge that take our socio-historical embeddedness seriously. While Jacobs has mainly written on Husserl and post-Husserlian phenomenology, she also has an active research interest in moral psychology and social epistemology insofar as these intersect with critical race and feminist theory.
The 40-minute lecture will be followed by a student-faculty discussion on how to approach inclusivity in the classroom. The event coincides with the opening of the call for applications to the 2019-20 Sheila Mason Bursary, designed to provide financial aid to women, BIPOC, LGBTTQIA+ people, and students with disabilities enrolled in a Minor, Major or Honours in Philosophy.
What does cutting-edge research in philosophy look like? What are pressing and enduring questions it uncovers, and ways of addressing them? This event offers a taste. From enduring questions about the nature of morality and human experience, to urgent questions about how to overcome oppression, research conducted in Concordia’s Department of Philosophy reflects this diversity.
Dr. Angela Mendelovici is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Western University. She works in philosophy of mind, specifically on intentionality, consciousness, and the relationship between the two.
Concordia's Faculty of Arts and Science invites you to meet our published faculty authors and celebrate their hard work: over 60 publications since 2017. Books will be available for purchase by special order through the Concordia Bookstore.
Heidegger on Translation: From the “Untranslatable” to Essential Translation
The digital age poses new challenges for epistemology. Digital technologies have become central to how we form, revise, and maintain our beliefs. How should we approach this recent development as epistemologists? What is the epistemological significance of our increasing reliance on anonymous online sources, social media, personalized news feeds, and search engines? What does the widespread use of AI and opaque algorithms mean for our lives as knowers, testifiers, and reasoners? Do new epistemic responsibilities arise in the digital world? How can we, as epistemologists, contribute to making sense of these developments? These are some of the questions we’d like to discuss at this year’s annual meeting of the Canadian Epistemological Society.
