next week I’ll be at the Central APA in Chicago, excited to participate in several sessions:

Weds evening Mar 2 (7-10pm) I’ll be at the North American Neo-Kantian Society (NANKS) meeting on aesthetics with Samantha Matherne (UC Santa Cruz), Melissa Zinkin (SUNY Binghamton), and Anne Pollok (South Carolina), which Lydia Patton, Nick Stang, and I helped organize (more info and abstracts here):

Friday afternoon Mar 4 (2-5pm) there’s a Symposium on self-consciousness in modern philosophy, which — judging by the speakers — will also be german-philosophy-focused:

and (finally) Saturday afternoon Mar 5 (2:45-5:45pm) there’s a ‘Topics in European Philosophy’ session with papers on Nietzsche and Cassirer (among others) — and I suspect Anthony Bruno‘s  (Toronto) paper will contain at least some engagement with German Idealism:

so — quite a line-up!

(and there are still additional german-philosophy-oriented single papers in other sessions: Fri 2-3pm Andrew Chignell (Cornell University) “Practical Arguments, Kantian Hope, and Opportunistic Carnivorism”; Fri 7-8pm Chandler Rogers (Loyola Marymount University) “Schleiermacher in the Kierkegaardian Project: Between Socratic Ignorance and Second Immediacy”; Sat 12:15-2:15pm Darla Migan (Vanderbilt University) “Adrian Piper’s Thwarted Projects, Dashed Hopes, A Moment of Embarrassment (2012): Anti-Black Racism as Mistakes in Kantian Aesthetic Reflective Judgment” — and surely others I’ve missed….)
