Dr. Gayle Salamon will present at GW on Dec. 6

GW’s department of philosophy invites all alumni to the upcoming First Annual Sophia Lecture, featuring Dr. Gayle Salamon of Princeton University.

Dr. Salamon’s lecture, “Phenomenological Anonymity,” will explore anonymity in the work of Alfred Schutz and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.

In her presentation, Dr. Salamon will look at the role anonymity plays in several areas of phenomenological inquiry: otherness, common sense and the social world.

The event takes place on the Foggy Bottom campus on Friday, Dec. 6 at 4:00pm in Duques Hall (2201 G Street, NW) room 152.

This inaugural lecture series has been funded by a GW philosophy alumna, and is designated for early to mid-career women and/or minority philosophers. The series strives to recognize the excellent scholarship of younger women and minority members of the profession through a public lecture that will not only help them educate others, but also help them further their careers.

If you’re in the DC area, be sure to mark your calendar for this exciting event!  For more information, visit the GW philosophy deptartment’s website, or follow the dept. on Facebook.
