Against Type is a longer essay at Aeon magazine that argues for a range of contributions that a renewed attention to existentialism can make to the psychology and ethics of stereotyping and implicit bias.
Jonathan Webber will be presenting ideas from Rethinking Existentialism at a weekend course in January 2020 in Oxford. The course will feature talks by Kate Kirkpatrick, author of Becoming Beauvoir, an important new philosophical biography being published in August 2019.
There are audio recordings of the talks by Eva Koumpli on psychodrama, Rebecca Pitt on play, and Katherine Morris and Miles Clapham on the lived body, along with a film of the talk by Lennox Thomas on legacies of colonialism.
Submissions are invited for a one-day workshop on existentialism for people considering doing postgraduate research on the theoretical, biographical, or literary works of Beauvoir, Fanon, Sartre or other existentialist thinkers.
Each participant will give a short paper analysing or applying some aspect of existentialism.
Participants should have, or be currently studying towards, a Bachelors or Masters degree in a discipline relevant to their paper. The event will include a session on applying for postgraduate research study in the UK.
Accommodation, meals, and UK travel expenses for all participants will be provided by the workshop, which will be held at Cardiff University. The venue will be fully accessible.
To apply to participate, please send a paper of no more than 3000 words (all inclusive) or a one-page Mumford Method handout (what’s that? – see here). The deadline is strictly 5pm GMT on Friday 4th December 2015.
Papers will be selected by anonymous review. Please ensure that your paper or handout does not include any information that could identify its author. Please give your qualifications in the email itself.
