Content and Program
This event will take place on site in Bern. If necessary we will hold it as an online conference. Upon registration you will get further Information.
The aim of this workshop is to explore the concept of epistemic injustice, which reveals an ethical dimension of epistemic life. We will read Miranda Fricker’s book Epistemic Injustice - Power & the Ethics of Knowing. She in- vestigates testimonial injustice, in which someone is wronged in their capaci- ty as a giver of knowledge, and hermeneutical injustice, in which someone is wronged in their capacity as a subject of social understanding.
This workshop is open to all public. Please register until August 31 by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to recieve further information.
