Keynote Speakers:

Catherine Malabou (Centre for Research in Modern Philosophy, Kingston University) David Bates (Department of Rhetoric, UC Berkeley)

The conference will take place at King’s University College, Darryl J. King Student Life Centre. Catherine Malabou will give a keynote address on Feb. 5 from 5:00–6:30 pm.

Catherine Malabou is one of Europe’s leading philosophers. Her work on the brain, plasticity, and neuroscience has paved the way for new thinking about what it is to be embodied and conscious, challenging notions of the self as well as social and political relations. Malabou’s interpretation of leading figures of philosophy, for example, Hegel, has generated novel philosophical approaches and applications for our contemporary world. The Centre for Advanced Research in European Philosophy at King’s University College and The Centre for Theory and Criticism at Western University are hosting an international conference dedicated to exploring the philosophy of Catherine Malabou.
