KIE scholar to present at APA’s 2017 Eastern Division Meeting

KIE Senior Research Scholar Karen Stohr will speak as part of a symposium this upcoming January at the 2017 Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA). The unexpectedly timely session is called “The Philosophy and Politics of (In)civility.”

Stohr joins symposium chair Trip Glazer (of Georgetown University) and co-speakers Alison Reiheld (of Southern Illinois University–Edwardsville) and Amy Olberding (of University of Oklahoma).

This is the 113th meeting of the APA Eastern Division. Founded in 1900, the American Philosophical Association works to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers, and to represent philosophy as a discipline. The APA is one of the largest philosophical societies in the world and the only philosophical society in the United States not devoted to a particular field, school, or philosophical approach. The APA’s three divisions, the Central, Eastern, and Pacific, conduct annual meetings at which philosophers present research and exchange ideas.

This year’s Eastern Meeting will take place in Baltimore, MD, and offer a program of over 100 sessions, including colloquium and symposium sessions, author-meets-critics sessions, the Presidential Address, the Dewey Lecture, and more.
