Veranstaltende Institution: Colloquium for so-called french philosophy

Where does thought happen? Embodied epistemologies have, in the last years, pointed to the necessity of the situatedness of knowledge. No judgement comes from an abstract subject spinning in a void. The space of assertion has been multiplied. Since the locus of speech is decentralized, how do we talk to each other? How do we learn to speak the tongues of the many?

The spe/acialization and professionalization of thought in global academic contexts disassociates bodies of collectivity. The multiplication of spaces for thought runs therefore the risk to become particularized, producing discourses enclosed in themselves. Thus, we ask, how are epistemologies situated inside and outside academia? A re-distribution of inwards and outwards is necessary. Specialized thought needs to become countered by effective co-operation. Individualization needs to become countered by forming collective bodies.


The Colloquium for so-called french philosophy calls for perspectives on forms of constructive collectivities where thought and praxis are brought together. Academic presentations as well as experimental formats are welcomed.

For the past six years, the colloquium has been organized by students of Bonn University trying to highlight neglected philosophical projects in that institution, with a focus on the so-called french philosophy. However, contributions are not bound to this field. The events will take place in June and July, in person and/or online.
