Queens to host regional and national philosophy conferences

02/17/10 -  

Queens'  Department of Philosophy and Religion and the Center for Ethics and Religion will host a regional philosophy meeting in February, 2010,  and a national philosophy conference just two weeks later in March.

The first event is on campus:  the bi-annual meeting of the North Carolina and South Carolina philosophical societies on Friday and Saturday, February 26th and 27th. About one hundred philosophers will be on campus (a frightening thought, we in the department know!).

 

The second event,  March 11 - 13, is the annual national meeting of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy.  That meeting, which Queens will co-host with UNC - Charlotte, will be at the Omni hotel in uptown Charlotte.  Queens philosophy professors Drs. Eric Mullis and Norris Frederick will present papers at a session entitled, "William James Visits North Carolina:  'On A Certain Blindness in Human Beings,' the Landscape, and Religious Ecstasy." 

 

Mullis's presentation is "William James and Environmental Aesthetics: Re-thinking the 'Squalid' North Carolina Farm," and Frederick's is "William James and Serpent-Handlers in those North Carolina Mountains."
