Keynote speaker

 This year ESHET has the honour to host Nancy Fraser as a keynote speaker.

Nancy Fraser is currently the Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor of Political and Social Science and professor of philosophy at The New School in New York City, and incumbent of the International Research Chair in Social Justice at the Collèged’ÉtudesMondiales between 2011 and 2016. She is also an active member of the Editorial Council of Constellations, an international journal of critical and democratic theory.

She has received numerous HonorisCausa degrees and academic prizes, among which the Alfred Schutz Prize in Social Philosophy from the American Philosophical Association in 2010. Her lifelong research and distinguished contributions to political philosophy have focused on justice from a feminist and post-structuralist point of view, in dialogue with traditions of philosophical and political thinking ranging from liberalism to socialism.
