Call for Papers: Workshop "Recognition and Poverty"


15 and 16 November 2018, University of Salzburg

Invited speaker: David Ingram (Loyola University Chicago)

Deadline for submissions: 1 May 2018


The overall aim of this workshop is to bring together papers that explore the relation of recognition and poverty, and how (critical) theories of recognition can be utilized to enhance our understanding, evaluation and critique of poverty, social inequalities, and related injustices. This also includes issues of recognition in the production of poverty knowledge and in poverty research. Another possible topic is the relation of recognition to other critical normative concepts such as reification, alienation or invisibility in respect to issues of poverty. Furthermore, papers can explore (anti-)poverty policies, development aid and duties towards the (global) poor. Critical examinations of reflections on poverty and related issues in the work of past and present thinkers of recognition (e.g. Fichte, Hegel,Kojeve, Fanon, Taylor, Fraser, Honneth) are welcomed.


This workshop hopes to contribute to the ongoing and expanding debate about recognition in ethics, political and social philosophy by focusing on poverty, which is one important social and global challenge. Contributions from social and political theory are also welcomed as are papers that combine conceptual and empirical work.
