CFP by 12/15 for Philosophical Engagements with Trauma (March 22-23, 2019)

Call for Papers

Philosophical Engagements with Trauma March 22-23, 2019
University of North Carolina Asheville Asheville, NC

The Philosophy Department of the University of North Carolina Asheville will host a conference on Philosophical Engagements with Trauma on March 22-23, 2019. Featured events for the conference include a panel on Melissa Burchard’s recent book from Routledge Press, Philosophical Reflections on Mothering in Trauma, and our invited speakers:

Dr. Peg O’Connor, Gustavus Adolphus College
Dr. Abby L. Wilkerson, George Washington University

As this conference is the first that we know of to specifically focus on philosophy and trauma, we encourage a broad range of topics and engagements from, hopefully, a broad range of perspectives, including those traditionally underrepresented in philosophy.

Please send submissions to Melissa Burchard, Chair of the Department of Philosophy at UNCA, mburchar at unca.edu by December 15, 2018.

  1. This is excellent! I have returned to school to be a counselor, and I am definitely going to bring my philosophical studies into my work. I think philosophy and psychology as deficit/illness centered partisan endeavors is in need of a refocusing.
