Epistemic Injustice and Recognition Theory
Ort: HU Berlin
Beginn: 01.09.2022 09:30
Ende: 02.09.2022 19:00
Recently, there has been increasing interest in the relation between epistemic injustice and the concept of recognition. The main idea is that practices of silencing and epistemic exclusion have consequences that go well beyond the epistemic dimension and that influence our social practices of giving respect, esteem, and love. The conference is part of the DFG-funded research network on the relation between recognition theory and theories of epistemic injustice, which aims to shed light on the relation of theories of epistemic injustice, oppression, and violence and recognition theory, and to bring together questions of the normative status of knowers with research on standpoints, ideology, and social movements.
