Conference starting tomorrow!

We’ve been frantically filling delegate bags and snipping away at name tags in anticipation of tomorrow’s ‘Forms of Knowledge’ international conference.

Proceedings kick off with registration (and coffee!) at 8.45am tomorrow, Tuesday 7th November. We’ll be in 50 George Square for the duration of the day. We’ll then migrate to the Institut français d’Ecosse at Lothian Chambers on George IV Bridge for Wednesday’s events.

If you’re in and around Edinburgh on either day, whether you’re part of our (or any) university or not, we’d love it if you’d join us. Full details can be found on our conference page or in the attached brochure.

Prof. Sandra Laugier, keynote speaker

We are delighted that Prof. Sandra Laugier has agreed to be keynote speaker at our Forms of Knowledge conference. Prof. Laugier is Full Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne.

She’ll be delivering two talks during her stay in Edinburgh. Her conference keynote speech – entitled ‘Ethics, Literature, and What Matters’ – will take place in the French Consulate at 1700 on Wednesday 8th November.

Prof. Laugier also will be giving a talk as part of the Department of European Language and Culture’s (DELC) French Seminar Series. Here she will turn her attention to ‘Civil Disobedience and Democracy.’ This is due to take place in David Hume Lecture Theatre A at 1715 on Tuesday 7th November.

We hope to see you at one or both of what are sure to be exciting and challenging talks.
