Type: KCL Minorities and Philosophy Conference
Institution: KCL Minorities and Philosophy Society, King's College

KCL Minorities and Philosophy welcomes submissions of abstracts for
its conference in March 2019.
We invite undergraduate and postgraduate students from UK
universities to submit abstracts on subjects related to the theme of
‘Decolonisation – Shaping and Re-shaping Reality’. Submissions from
international students are also welcomed, however, we will not be
able to fund international travel.
This conference aims to open up questions and provide a platform for
critical analysis concerning the underlying assumptions, ideologies,
narratives, social structures etc. that are rooted in white
colonialism, which have shaped (and continue to shape) reality for a
multitude of people. The aim is to re-tell stories where white
heterosexual upper-class men are no longer the protagonists, and to
think critically about ways to re-shape our present reality in
efforts towards decolonisation.
Possible areas include (but are not limited to):
- Philosophy of Race
- Political Philosophy
- History of Philosophy
- Continental Philosophy
- Philosophy of Language
- Philosophy of Science
We accept submissions from students in a wide-range of disciplines,
such as history, geography, anthropology, languages, as well as
medicine and the nature sciences.
Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words.
Please submit abstracts in PDF format by 15th December 2018 to:
