There a quite a few interesting philosophy and theory conferences coming up in the next few months so I thought I’d do a post here: Feminism, Science and Materialism Feb 14-15, 2013 Keynote: Karen Barad CUNY, NYC 1000 w abstracts due November 1, 2012 Duquesne Graduate Conference in Philosophy (Philosophy and Nature) Feb 23, 2013 […]


There will be spoilers! Besides the shadow of the Aurora shooting as well as the ridiculous comments from Romney’s camp that Bane was somehow riffing on Bain capital (suggesting that the Romney camp is incapable of a two second wikipedia search to note when Bane was created) most of the talk around the Dark Knight […]
