In collaboration with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy, we invite interested parties to register for the conference ‚ÄėThe Reevaluation of Subjectivity in Contemporary Continental Philosophy‚Äô to take place February 9-10, 2023, at Radboud University.¬† Dates and Location February 9-10, 2023 Huize Heyendael (Geert Grooteplein 9) Nijmegen, 6525 EZ Netherlands About the topic Near the end of the 1980s, Jean-Luc Nancy invited some of the leading French philosophers of his time to answer an intriguing question: Who Comes After the Subject? His call sparked a great diversity of answers and problematizations of the question itself, which were collected in an influential edited volume. We feel that today, in our age of geopolitical, technological and ecological rupture, the time has come to take up Nancy‚Äôs question once again. Following Nancy‚Äôs example, the goal of this conference is to map a variety of present-day perspectives on the reevaluation of subjectivity in contemporary continental philosophy, by facilitating a two-day, in-person discussion of the interrelations between subjectivity and present-day topics including, but not limited to ecological crisis, nonhuman agency, intersectionality and political action.

About the topic
Near the end of the 1980s, Jean-Luc Nancy invited some of the leading French philosophers of his time to answer an intriguing question: Who Comes After the Subject? His call sparked a great diversity of answers and problematizations of the question itself, which were collected in an influential edited volume. We feel that today, in our age of geopolitical, technological and ecological rupture, the time has come to take up Nancy’s question once again. Following Nancy’s example, the goal of this conference is to map a variety of present-day perspectives on the reevaluation of subjectivity in contemporary continental philosophy, by facilitating a two-day, in-person discussion of the interrelations between subjectivity and present-day topics including, but not limited to ecological crisis, nonhuman agency, intersectionality and political action.
