Duke PAL Spring Schedule + Young Scholars Workshop & Links

Philosophy and Literature at Duke has an impressive spring schedule lined up (and already underway). Below you’ll find their calendar complete with linked posters for events  still ahead of us.

Of special note is the 5th Annual Young Scholars Workshop Philosophy Inquiry and the Humanities: History, Literature, and Feminism with Richard Moran and Sabina Lovibond among others. Young scholars are invited to apply for the workshop which takes place February 6th-7th. Applications are due this Friday, January 24 and are available [here].


PAL is excited to present our Spring 2014 schedule. Events include the annual Young Scholars Workshop, lectures co-sponsored with theAudiovisualities Lab at FHI and the Music Department, and a seminar close-reading portions of Cavell’s The Claim of Reason. PAL is also introducing a new forum series this spring: My Wittgenstein. Several Duke faculty will discuss the ways Wittgenstein’s work has influenced their vision of the world. Our conversations will be wide-ranging and interdisciplinary. We hope to see you there!
