CHILDISM AND PHILOSOPHY

December 10, 2021, 9:00-11:00 am US ET, online via Zoom

This Transnational Childism Colloquium brings together a diversity of perspectives to develop conceptual clarity about what could and should be meant by the term childism.

 

  • What does the notion of childism mean, particularly but not only in its childhood studies sense?

  • How could childism contribute to better understandings of human beings and relations?

  • How is the concept related to and distinct from philosophies in feminism, liberalism, poststructuralism, and other philosophies?

  • How is childism a challenge to the discipline of philosophy itself?
