In May and June, David Hildebrand, Associate Professor and Chair of Philosophy, heads to Scandinavia to present a workshop paper entitled “Educating for Pluralistic Conflicts." The paper offers a pragmatic, philosophical toolkit for addressing the challenges posed to democracies by individual and cultural pluralism. The workshop is entitled "Pluralism" and is co-organized by the GROW research project (University of Eastern Finland), the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence, "Reasons and Religious Recognition" (University of Helsinki), and the Nordic Pragmatism Network. A few days later, at Aarhus University (Denmark), Hildebrand will serve as an invited, external PhD Assessor for a dissertation defense on John Dewey, democracy, and inquiry at the Aarhus Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas.
