2019 Red Star Line Conference

The theme of the 2019 Red Star Line conference is “Thinking and Living the Good Life.” Graduate students from a wide array of universities and backgrounds will be giving presentations on what it means to live well in contemporary society, how we can know the right or best way to live, and the role of thought in the enterprise of human life. Having originated as a biennial conference between Fordham University and the University of Antwerp, the Red Star Line conference aims to bring together graduate students that work in different areas in order to think through a singular theme and search for commonalities and intersections among a broad array of approaches. All are invited to attend and a program will be released in the near future.

Hacer Escuela/Inventing School: Latin American Pedagogy Conference

The Hacer Escuela/Inventing School workshop series brings together Latin American thinkers working on philosophies of education influenced by critical theory traditions, with professors, undergraduate and graduate students, and others studying critical theory in North America. Our project asks how, notwithstanding the increasing imposition of neoliberal measures, a variety of education movements from Latin American and the Caribbean have given rise to new understandings of pedagogical relations, of what it means to be a subject of education, and how educational practice can refigure public space.

Confirmed Speakers: 
Walter Omar Kohan (Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro and the Núcleo de Estudos de Filosofias e Infâncias)
Frances Negrón-Muntaner (Columbia University)
Marlène Ramírez-Cancio (Hemispheric Institute, New York University)
