Workshop: Diskursmacht - Wissen - Teilhabe

The question about the relevance of knowledge and sciences for a society built on equality and justice is urgent in the current philosophical debate and its related fields. Not only the factors for successful transformation are being challenged, but also the extent to which structures of generating and communicating knowledge are inherently violent. What are the restrictions limiting access to participation in philosophical debates? Are these restrictions justifiable or are they affected by sexist, racist and classist prejudices?



Knowledge, Participation and Power of Discourse

The Meaning of Epistemic Injustice in Philosophy

Practical and intercultural Philosophy as well as transformative research offer approaches to questioning universalisms and disclosing practices of othering. Media ethics provides understanding on how master and base narratives shape the perception of knowledge and science. The question is: In what way are these critical approaches epistemically unjust themselves, obstructing the vision of participation and increasing social justice? Exclusive access, rigid boundaries between (scientific) disciplines and traditional personnel policy are just a few examples for the structures of power philosophy is entangled in.

The event consists of workshop units and a round table in the evening. We wish to open a space for joint learning. Mutual appreciation and inspiration are important to us.

For participation, please apply via until November 1st, 2022.
