The 2015 will be shared by Lea Ypi of the Department of Government, LSE, for her manuscript “The Meaning of Partisanship” (co-authored with Jonathan White), and Magali Bessone of the UFR de Philosophie, Université de Rennes 1, for her manuscript “Réparer les injustices coloniales: Propositions néo-républicaines pour une justice réparatrice.” The workshop with Bessone will held in Montreal on May 4, 2015; the workshop with Ypi will held in the fall.
Call for applications: The Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire en philosophie politique de Montréal (GRIPP), spanning the departments of political science and philosophy at McGill University, l’Université de Montréal, Concordia University, and l’Université du Québec à Montréal, invites applications for its 2015 manuscript workshop award. The recipient of the award will be invited to Montreal for a day-long workshop in April/May 2015 dedicated to his or her book manuscript. This “author meets critics” workshop will comprise four to five sessions dedicated to critical discussion of the manuscript; each session will begin with a critical commentary on a section of the manuscript by a political theorist or philosopher who is part of Montreal’s GRIPP community. The format is designed to maximize feedback for a book-in-progress. The award covers the costs of travel, accommodation, and meals.
