SAP sponsored event: BIPPA Annual Conference 2022: Race, Gender, Identity

Every year, the British and Irish Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BIPPA) organises its Annual Conference, when we aim at bringing together postgraduate students from all over the UK and the Republic of Ireland to present their work, meet their peers and strengthen the postgraduate philosophical community.

The conference includes talks by graduate students, keynote addresses by senior academics, and the BIPPA Annual Careers Workshop. This year, participants will also have the opportunity to attend our BIPPA Annual Masterclass during the second day of the conference.

The 2022 edition of the BIPPA Annual Conference will take place in person at University College Dublin (Dublin, Republic of Ireland) on the 11th and 12th of November 2022. This comes as a great novelty for all of us, as it is the first time that the BIPPA organizes its annual conference in the Republic of Ireland. The Annual Masterclass will also take place at UCD, on the 12th November 2022.

The theme of the conference is ‘Gender, Race, Identity’. We want to bring together a variety of perspectives and philosophical traditions addressing the notion of identity, broadly understood: from the philosophy of personal identity and the self, to the notion of social identity and its connections with feminist philosophy, queer theory, or philosophy of race.

We also take pride in announcing that the conference and the masterclass will feature lectures by distinguished academics. Keynote speakers for the 2022 conference, masterclass, and for the career workshops include:

· Professor Katherine O’Donnell (University College Dublin)
· Professor Tommy J. Curry (University of Edinburgh)
· Dr Valeria Venditti (University College Cork)
· Dr Danielle Petherbridge (University College Dublin)
· Dr Alexander Franklin (King’s College London)
· Dr Jonas Raab (Trinity College Dublin)
· Prof Eric Olson (Sheffield)

We are deeply grateful to the Royal Institute of Philosophy, the Society for Applied Philosophy and University College Dublin for the support and generous funding.
