Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My research is on collective memory and place--particularly monuments and memorials. More broadly, I am interested in urban places and their role in communal self-understanding.

Hi, Janet--welcome to the PPN, and to the Philosophy and the City affinity group.  I"ve not been as active a moderator as I want to be because I'm also the co-director of the whole organization, but I welcome new members and plan to take a more active role with this group in the coming months.  We welcome posts, and you'll be perhaps surprised to find a growing number of philosophers interested in all things urban.  I also want to encourage you to consider attending the upcoming PPN conference and workshops at Emory University, March 14-16, 2013.  There are several workshops of potential interest to you, including one that I'm doing with a colleague on the use of civic theater to enhance reflection on cities, including monuments, how cities are remembered, etc.  Click on the home page conference tab for more info.  Registration at discounted rates ends Feb. 8th.  thank, Shaorn

Hello, Janet!

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.

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.

Since you are interested in urban places, you might like to join the group Philosophers in the City to begin.

Thanks again for joining the network. We look forward to your contribution!
