Nussbaum conference in Durham [UPDATE]

I’m hosting a special two day conference “Overcoming Intolerance: Nussbaum and Her Critics” in the Kenilworthy Room at St Mary’s College, Durham on 23rd—24th May 2014. The conference will explore key themes and issues in the work of Martha C. Nussbaum (Chicago).

The first day will have four papers focusing on her recent The New Religious Intolerance: Overcoming the Politics of Fear in an Anxious Age (Harvard University Press, 2012). Speakers include Professor Maleiha Malik (Law, KCL), Professor Peter Jones (Politics, Newcastle), Dr Clare Chambers (Philosophy, Cambridge) and me. Nussbaum will reply to each paper before the floor is opened for questions.
The second day will have two roundtables exploring wider issues and their implications. The first is “Political Emotions” led by Sara Protasi (Philosophy, Yale) with responses by Dr Phil Horky (Classics, Durham) and Nussbaum. The second roundtable is on “Capabilities and Political Liberalism” led by Professor Mozaffar Qizilbash (Economics, York) with responses by Dr Maria Dimova-Cookson (SGIA, Durham) and Nussbaum.
