The conference program for the APA Eastern Division Meeting — which will be held in New York City, from December 27-30 — is now out. I’ve only had a chance to glance quickly through it, but the following “Author meets Critics” session immediately caught my eye:
III-E. Authors Meet Critics: Cary Wolfe, Cora Diamond, Stanley Cavell, Ian Hacking, and John McDowell’s Philosophy and Animal Life
Chair: Benjamin Hale (University of Colorado–Boulder)
Critics: Ralph Acampora (Hofstra University)
Leonard Lawlor (Pennsylvania State University)
Authors: Cora Diamond (University of Virginia)
Ian Hacking (University of Toronto/Collège de France)
Alas, during these dates, I will be attending the MLA in Philadelphia (though happily, to chair a panel on Cavell), otherwise I would definitely try go see this session. If any of you do go to it, I’d be very grateful for an account!
Also, if you notice any other sessions in the program that you think would interest readers of this blog (I’m sure there are many more), please let us know by leaving a comment to this post (or by sending me an email).
Here is a PDF of the program:
