Bajo Palabra Philosophy Conference 2012 : Call for Papers at the 2nd Bajo Palabra International Philosophy Conference 

2012 2nd Bajo Palabra-UAM International Philosophy Conference:
“Philosophy, Human Rights and Democracy”

Autonomous University of Madrid
12 to 16 November 2012

The Bajo Palabra Philosophy Association of the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) has been working throughout the last few years to promote and develop research and scholarly work in Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly in Philosophy, as well as to support its diffusion beyond the academic world. For this reason, and as a natural extension of its activities, last year the Bajo Palabra Philosophy Association undertook the project of a 1st Philosophy Conference, entitled “Reflections on a Plural World”, with the intention of maintaining the continuity of the project as a periodic, annual event, taking place every winter.

Bajo Palabra Philosophy Association is currently preparing the next edition of the Conference for 2012, which this time will be held the 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16th November 2012, on the UAM Campus, in connection with the inauguration of the UNESCO Chair[1] (whose official denomination, incidentally, is “Philosophy, Human Rights and Democracy”, thus perfectly overlapping with the main thematic axis of this year’s Edition of the Conference).

Our aim, therefore, is to open a space for exchange, dissemination and collaborative work between people coming from different areas of knowledge, geographical areas, and personal and intellectual experiences. We are inviting students, scholars and researchers from different countries and with different academic backgrounds to exchange the results of their work with each other, at a time when interdisciplinary is more important than ever, and when diversity is the driving force behind every development. Our Conference offers its participants an opportunity to explore the complexities, possibilities and contradictions of present societies from different viewpoints and perspectives.
