World Philosophies and Traditions of Knowledge-Making: Why Now? Why Here?  Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam 19th-21st September 2022 (hybrid workshop) Traditionally, scholarship on world philosophies has been predominantly tacked onto the nation-states that populate the world discourse today. Although such a framing might suit the needs of the current academic setup in philosophy in North America and Europe, it is in need of an urgent overhaul. For one, the migration of ideas that have impacted world-philosophical traditions cannot be studied adequately when they are read as if they were derivative of the national context in which they are located today. For another, positions associated with these traditions are not mere historical relics. Critical interventions that took place within them continue to inform the present in many ways. World Philosophies and Traditions of Knowledge-Making will bring together scholars who challenge contemporary ways of studying world-philosophical traditions that juxtapose them against each other and/or depict them as bygone relics of a hoary past. It endeavors to foreground deviant ways of doing this work, both in research and teaching and provide a forum to exchange thoughts about how to carry forward this work into the future.

World Philosophies and Traditions of Knowledge-Making: Why Now? Why Here? 
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
19th-21st September 2022
(hybrid workshop)

Traditionally, scholarship on world philosophies has been predominantly tacked onto the nation-states that populate the world discourse today. Although such a framing might suit the needs of the current academic setup in philosophy in North America and Europe, it is in need of an urgent overhaul. For one, the migration of ideas that have impacted world-philosophical traditions cannot be studied adequately when they are read as if they were derivative of the national context in which they are located today. For another, positions associated with these traditions are not mere historical relics. Critical interventions that took place within them continue to inform the present in many ways.

World Philosophies and Traditions of Knowledge-Making will bring together scholars who challenge contemporary ways of studying world-philosophical traditions that juxtapose them against each other and/or depict them as bygone relics of a hoary past. It endeavors to foreground deviant ways of doing this work, both in research and teaching and provide a forum to exchange thoughts about how to carry forward this work into the future.
