Welcome to the Desuperiorization and Superaltern Studies Blog!
After the first Conference on the "Desuperiorization of Philosophy and the Foundation of Superaltern Studies" has ended successfully, I want to keep up our conversation.
I will post here updates on the development of the follow-up conferences - one with a main focus on speciesism and another one with the focus on sexism - and I want to share further ideas on the projects of Desuperiorization and Superaltern Studies.
Of course, you are all wholeheartedly invited to add your thoughts, experiences, ideas and comments to this blog! Please let me know if and what you would to contribute and I can give you access as a blog writer (after you have signed up as a member this site)!
I would be excited to learn about your scholarly and your personal stories and comments on the superiorism of (western) philosophy! Where did you experience it? Was there a specific event or an interaction that made the superiorism visible to you? Do you suffer from it? Have you experienced someone else suffering from it? How do you approach superiorism in your teaching, your curriculum, with your colleagues? How do you desuperiorize? What personal consequences has superiorism on you? Where else (than academic) philosophy do you find it? What do you think needs to be done to make a change? These are, of course, just examples, please share with me your questions so that we may discuss them together - in this forum, in smaller groups, or privately!
Please also feel free to sign up to the GoogleGroup:
I am looking forward to our work!
All the best,
