Philosophies of Difference

Philosophies of Difference (PoD) convenes free public seminars on problems in continental philosophy that have been marginal to the dominant concerns of Western philosophical thought.

To date, PoD has convened over thirty public seminars in relation to fundamental concerns of our time. Seminars have engaged with topics including, Indigenous sovereignties and Indigenous philosophical thought, queer theory, trans philosophy, feminist theory, critical race theory, philosophy of disability, the climate crisis and the immigration detention industrial complex.

Our next seminar series will run online from August of 2021.

Philosophies of Difference formed a partnership with the non/fictionLab in 2020 and is curated by Lab core member, Dr Rebecca Hill. It was originally established by Rebecca, Dr Ryan Gustafsson (The University of Melbourne) and Dr Helen Ngo (Deakin University) in 2016.

For details of our past events see the Philosophies of Difference Wordpress site.

In 2017 Philosophies of Difference released an edited book based on some of our seminars as well as some original contributions from several leading continental philosophers: Philosophies of Difference: Nature, Racism and Sexuate Difference
