    AUSTRALASIAN SOCIETY FOR CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY CONFERENCE 2017 | UNIVERSITY OF TASMANIA (HOBART)
    Conference Program: November 29 - December 1
    Pre-Conference Postgraduate Day: November 28

    The 2017 conference of the Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy will take place at the University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay Campus, November 29 - December 1, with a dedicated postgraduate afternoon for professional development and social activities on the 28th of November. The ASCP provides a broad intellectual forum for scholars working within, or in communication with, European philosophical traditions. Its annual conference is the largest event devoted to continental philosophy in Australasia. For the 2017 conference, we seek to challenge commonplace understandings of the boundaries of scholarship in continental philosophy, with a particular focus on the role of feminist, postcolonial and ecological thought in transforming the key questions that drive philosophical inquiry.

    KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
    Lewis Gordon | University of Connecticut
    Sigi Jottkandt | University of New South Wales
    Marguerite La Caze | University of Queensland
    The conference will also host a plenary session on the work of Moira Gatens.
