The renewed interest in Hegel within the English speaking world has contributed immensely to understanding Hegel on an exegetical level. However, the historical significance of his work can only be fully appreciated if it is read in the context of those philosophers who critically engaged with Hegelian ideas and developed them in their own ways. Proponents of such a productive critique of Hegel are (amongst others) Schelling, Kierkegaard, Marx, Adorno, and Fanon. Just as none of these thinkers can be understood without the background of Hegel’s idealism, Hegel’s significance can only be fully appreciated if we also understand him as a crucial point of departure for major currents of thought in 19th and 20th century philosophy.

We invite submissions from PhD students and early career researchers on, but not limited to, the following topics: Direct and indirect criticism of Hegel’s philosophy; positive use of Hegelian ideas within post-Hegelian thinkers; the relationship between Hegel and British idealism, including the critique of British idealism in early analytic philosophy; early or lesser known figures in the reception of Hegel; reception of Hegel in non-Western contexts.

Keynotes: Peter Dews, Béatrice Han-Pile, Brian O’Connor, Christoph Schuringa, Tanja Staehler. There may be the possibility of publishing the conference proceedings in a special issue of the Hegel Bulletin.
