new narratives

the history of philosophy roundtable (and the ucsd department more generally) is especially interested in providing a venue for discussing the ‘new narratives’ in the history of philosophy that have been emerging in recent decades, concerning philosophy written by voices that have traditionally been ignored (and often oppressed) within the discipline, due to gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and at times all of the above (among others).  to this end we are partnering with the following initiatives within the department to organize sessions throughout the year that will contribute to furthering the articulation of these new narratives: 

  • workshop on race and racism in the history of philosophy (rrhp)
  • mexican philosophy lab (filomex)
  • summer program for women in philosophy (spwp) [currently in hiatus]
