Program of the “Equality and Citizenship 2021” Summer School

Summer School Equality and Citizenship

Summer school program and full schedule is available at the following link: Equality and Citizenship 2021

The Center for Advanced Studies Southeast Europe, the University of Rijeka, the University’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and its Department of Philosophy are organizing the seventh edition of their Summer School on Equality and Citizenship.

This Summer School does not reproduce the familiar educational format of a university course. Instead, it consists of several Author-Meets-Critics symposia dedicated to a prominent author’s publications and present research. Within the School’s model, the leading participants hold lectures on their latest work or recount a recently published book. After the academics partaking in the symposium have presented their papers responding to the principal authors’ research, the keynote speakers reply to their critiques and comments.

This year’s leading participants are:

Prof. Ingrid Robeyns, University of Utrecht

Dr. Collis Tahzib, University of Oxford

Dr. Ivan Cerovac, University of Rijeka

The Summer School pertains primarily to post-doctoral and doctoral researchers, who are invited to contribute to arguments by commenting and asking informed questions. Moreover, post-doctoral and doctoral students who have participated in the School’s previous editions are invited to propose presenting their articles at the symposia. Post-doctoral and doctoral students alone can obtain certificates of participation that describe their engagement at the Summer School.

This year’s Summer School will take place from July 12th to July 16th, 2021, via Zoom.

Information

Participation in the Summer School is free of charge. Active participants should provide their full name, affiliation, and their talk’s title by July 4th. They should also indicate in which Author-Meets-Critics symposium they wish to participate. It is possible to present a paper at more than one symposium. Passive participants can apply by providing their full name and affiliation by July 9th. Potential participants should send all applications by email to politicalphilosophy@cas.uniri.hr.

If you require any further details, please contact us at politicalphilosophy@cas.uniri.hr.

Updated information regarding the Summer School will soon be available at http://www.cas.uniri.hr/, on the Projects – Summer School Equality and Citizenship pages.

CAS SEE Seminars with Guests: Ivan Cerovac

On Thursday, May 27th at 10 am (CET) we hosted CAS SEE Weekly Seminar with Ivan Cerovac, presented by our fellow Marko-Luka Zubčić.

This talk will present Cerovac’s book Epistemic Democracy and Political Legitimacy and explore whether democratic procedures’ ability to produce substantively correct, efficient or just outcomes increases the legitimacy of such political decisions. Addressing both positions that are too epistemic (e.g., epistocracy), as well as those that are not epistemic enough (e.g., pure epistemic proceduralism), the talk will introduce an innovative structure that can be used to bring order to numerous accounts of epistemic democracy. Furthermore, mapping and critically engaging with the main theories of epistemic democracy, the talk will evaluate arguments for different democratic decision-making procedures and address whether (and to what extent) these arguments constitute democracy’s legitimacy-generating potential. 

Ivan Cerovac is a Research Fellow at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka, Croatia. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Trieste, Italy, and writes and teaches on a range of topics in ethics and political philosophy, including political legitimacy, social justice and democratic theory. He is the author of Epistemic Democracy and Political Legitimacy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020), and is currently working on the forthcoming John Stuart Mill and Epistemic Democracy (Rowman & Littlefield, 2021).
