Chair Sally Sedgwick to Present at Society for German Idealism & Romanticism Conference in Berlin

This week, Department Chair and Professor Sally Sedgwick will be presenting a paper as part of the annual conference held by the Society for German Idealism and Romanticism.

The Society for German Idealism and Romanticism “brings together philosophical and aesthetic investigations within the productive context of German Idealists such as Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, and German Romantics such as Novalis, Schlegel, and Hölderlin, as well as the immediate influencers on these figures such as Goethe, Schiller, Herder, and Lessing. Above all, the SGIR is a place for investigating if and to what degree the thought of the Idealists and Romantics can be fruitfully differentiated, and to what degree their ideas are inter-determinative.” The SGIR hosts conferences and sessions throughout the year, and works in affiliation with the American Philosophical Association and the German Studies Association.

On the 16th and 17th of June, the SGIR will host the conference, titled Theoretical Philosophy of Kant and Hegel, at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Professor Sedgwick will present her paper, “Time in the Preface to Hegel’s Phenomenology,” on Friday, June 17. Click here to learn more about the conference.

Best of luck and enjoy the conference, Professor!
