Symposium: Portraits and Philosophy

Friday 11 May 2018

10:00 - 16:30

Ondaatje Wing Theatre, Floor -2

Despite its all-pervasiveness, portraiture has not received much philosophical attention, contemporary philosophy remaining largely silent on the subject. Philosophers with different areas of expertise and art historians with a philosophical knack discuss this enduring and continuously fascinating genre. Speakers include: Diarmuid Costello, Reader in Philosophy, University of Warwick; Laura Cumming, art critic of The Observer; Stacie Friend, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Birkbeck; Martin Hammer, Professor of Art History, University of Kent; Hans Maes, Senior Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Art, University of Kent; Bence Nanay, Professor of Philosophy, University of Antwerp/University of Cambridge; Kathleen Stock, Reader in Philosophy, University of Sussex; and portrait artist Nadav Kander.
