Conferences by the very nature of the system they function in are classist. Meetings that cost over $250 to attend are no longer financially viable for most people, especially Early Career Faculty, K-12 Teachers, and Graduate Students. In addition, there is an exclusion of those disabilities and people with personal obligations. Conferences that charge hefty fees in the field of Pedagogy are actively harming students who’s educators do not have access to travel and conference funds. So I created an alternative!
Philosophy is known to be an exclusionary field so I wanted to provide some resources that can help us ponder how to make philosophy as an academic discipline more inclusive.
