Workshop on the Philosophy of Activism

Sept. 8 (3-8:30pm GMT) and Sept. 22 (3-8:30pm GMT), 2020

Organized by David Killoren

Although there has been a great deal of philosophical attention paid to certain types of activism (such as civil disobedience) and to certain movements and ideas associated with activism (such as feminism, the American civil rights movement, the animal rights movement, and the disability rights movement), activism as such remains surprisingly undertheorized and there remain many neglected philosophical questions about activism.

The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate and contribute to a newly emerging literature on the philosophy of activism.
