Philopolis

Philopolis is a festival of philosophy, open to the public and totally free. Our idea is to bring the diversity of academic theorization back into contact with the diversity of practice one finds in the broader community, with the goal of enriching both theory and practice.Started in Montreal in 2010, the festival still takes place annually there in the spring, and has also spread to Guelph, ON where it takes place annually in the fall. Philopolis is a great venue to use for engaging the…See More

Hi, Brooke!

Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)!  An introductory User Guide can be found under the “About” tab. We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests. While we welcome all members interested in public philosophy, the particular aim of this site is to help develop and support collaborative projects that include philosophers as partners in research and/or social action projects that in some way contribute a public good and/or further public discussion and deliberation. 

As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. We strongly encourage you to upload a photo on your profile page and to complete your profile so that other members with similar interests can network with you. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects. It's also very helpful to add searchable "key words" to your page so that others with similar interests can find you.

There are two ways to become actively involved on the PPN on-line network:  1) The affinity groups provide members with the opportunity to collaborate around a particular issue within public philosophy; 2) The general forums on the main page are intended to foster “metadiscussions” on issues in public philosophy that cut across specific issues—these discussions may focus on practical or philosophical concerns. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start an affinity group or add a thread to a general discussion forum.

For starters, it would be really great if you started your own affinity group for philosophy festivals. This could be a very effective way to share information and tips that you've learned from your experience of running the show with others who might be interested in doing the same. 

Thanks again for joining the network.

P.S. It was really nice to meet you in Atlanta!
