Epistemic Standpoints and the Epistemology of Injustice Colloquium featuring Sally Haslanger

Date: Time: 3:30 pm–5:30 pm
Louise Pound Hall Room: 308
512 N 12th Street

Contact: Ed Becker, ebecker1@unl.edu
Sally Haslanger is Ford Professor of Philosophy and Women’s and Gender Studies at MIT. Broadly speaking, Haslanger’s work links issues of social justice—especially concerning gender, race, and the family—with contemporary work in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. Recent work in social epistemology has focused on the significance of situated knowledge. Recognizing the situatedness of knowledge, after all, would seem to be just good practice for someone committed to a minimal empiricism.

Participants in the colloquium are expected to have read the paper in advance.
Copies will be available in Room 305, Louise Pound Hall or via email: jhaley1@unl.edu.
