The University of Manchester presents a Royal Institute of Philosophy conference series for postgraduate and early career researchers on the topic of Personhood and Selfhood, with additional support from the AHRC North-West Doctoral Training Partnership.

The series of workshops will consist of three 1-day events on the topic of ‘Personhood and Selfhood’, to be held at the University of Manchester in 2018.

Each session stands alone with a defined core thematic agenda, whilst as a series, we seek to enable attendees and speakers to identify threads and promising avenues for further research which cut across philosophical sub-divisions and approaches. The full series of 1-day workshops address the following themes:

1. Social Personhood

Date: 16th January 2018

2. Narrative Concepts of the Self

Keynote: Professor Marya Schechtman

3. Personhood and Self-Consciousness.
