The Center for Contemporary European Philosophy cordially invites you for a talk by Tina Chanter (Kingston): "Who is the peasant woman? Gender and old shoes: Heidegger, Van Gogh and Rancière" Heidegger’s critiques the essentially Aristotelian distinction between form and matter, recasting it in terms of the strife of world and earth.

The Center for Contemporary European Philosophy cordially invites you for a talk by John Drabinski (Amherst): Dialectics, Alterity, Race The talk will engage a strange trio: Emmanuel Levinas, Frantz Fanon, and James Baldwin. With this trio, the talk will explore how the experience of radical otherness - the Jew in France, the colonized in colonial space, and blackness in an anti-black racist world - both renders dialectic impossible and requires a kind of non-Adorno sense of negative dialectics.

Academic philosophy has a diversity problem. While gender, racial and ethnic diversity flourishes in many other disciplines, philosophy departments in Europe, North America, and Australia remain startlingly true to an age-old formula: predominantly white, Western males studying the thought of other white, Western males. In the Netherlands, only 4.5% of “hoogleraren” (full professors) of philosophy were women in 2011. The curricula of domestic Bachelor programmes display a similar monoculture: references to feminist philosophy are virtually non-existent, out of eight programmes…
