We are excited to annouce that this year's guest lecturer for our annual mini course during Welcome Week is Professor Sally Haslanger from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


The “Essex Lectures in Philosophy” (formerly the “mini course”) take place once or twice a year when the School of Philosophy and Art History invites a prestigious academic to give a series of lectures. This year, Professor Sally Haslanger is our guest speaker.

Sally began her philosophical life specializing in analytical metaphysics, epistemology, and in ancient philosophy (especially Aristotle). Over time, she developed interests in social and political philosophy, feminist theory and critical race theory.  Recently Sally has been working on social practices, social structure, structural explanation, and topics in feminist epistemology, much of which will be examined in this lecture series.

The first lecture in this year’s series will be provide an introduction to Sally’s work and will be followed by two lectures which will delve deeper into her research before finishing with an open seminar.

The schedule will be:

  • Materiality, and Culture: 10.00am-12.00pm, Wednesday 2 October 2019.
  • Articulated Systems of Domination: Diagnosis and Critique: 2.30pm-4.30pm, Wednesday 2 October 2019.
  • Epistemologies of Injustice in Theory and Practice: 2.00pm-4.00pm, Thursday 3 October 2019.
  • Open Seminar (discussion of the previous lectures): 4pm-6pm, Friday 4 October 2019.
