Language and Power
XII Interuniversity Workshop on Mind, Art, and Morality
University of Barcelona
22-23 May 2018
The Inter-University Workshop on Mind, Art and Morality promotes the interconnections across different areas in philosophy and, in particular, the study of issues lying at the intersection of ethics, aesthetics and the philosophy of mind. On the 2018 edition, we intend to focus on issues having to do with the connection between language and power. We will examine issues such as hate speech and freedom of speech, silencing, pejorative terms, hermeneutical injustice and discursive injustice, political speech, dangerous speech, dog-whistles, racial fig-leaves, and semantic externalism and public meanings.
