Format: Each presenter will provide either a paper for pre-reading or a recorded talk for pre-viewing (whichever the presenter prefers). These materials will be linked from the schedule below as they become available. Make sure that you check out these materials in advance of attending a given talk.
Each presenter's live session will last for one hour and will be devoted entirely to discussion/Q&A. When we have a double or triple header, we'll take a ten-minute break in between sessions. All of our live sessions will be via Zoom.
We'll have approximately one session per month throughout 2021.
The purpose of these seminars is to create and sustain an online community of philosophers of activism. Someday, in the post-covid future, we will have an in-person workshop. And at some point we will organize an edited volume.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the organizer: David Killoren (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This seminar series grows out of an earlier workshop.
