As readers and listeners of BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY know, I have written numerous posts on BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY about the exclusion of philosophy of disability and of disabled philosophers, especially disabled philosophers of disability, from Canadian philosophy. These exclusions are in addition dominant themes in my books and articles. (For instance, here and here.)
On Wednesday, May 18th, 11:00am to 2:15pm EDT, I will be joining Alex Bryant, Amandine Catala, Emily R. Douglas, Isaac (YunQi) Jiang, and Audrey Yap in an online symposium of the Canadian Philosophical Association (CPA) annual conference that, as always, is taking place under the rubric of the Federation of Social Sciences and Humanities annual Congress, a consortium of Canadian learned society meetings.
If you are registered for the CPA meeting or for any other society or association meeting of Congress 2022, I hope that you will come to our session, “Disabling Philosophy in the Canadian Context,” and learn about the state of philosophy of disability in Canada and about some cutting-edge philosophy of disability done by Canadian disabled philosophers. The Federation has deemed our session as an OPEN SESSION of Congress, which means anyone registered for Congress 2022 can attend it!
Hope to see you online with us on Wednesday at 11:00am!
