Epistemic injustice resource page
Following the conference 'Understanding Epistemic Injustice', organised by the Department of Philosophy in 2014, we have made available material from the conference to facilitate further discussion on the topic of epistemic injustice. Papers discussed explored or applied the concept of epistemic injustice, especially in relation to (i) epistemology, (ii) ethics, social and political philosophy, and (iii) feminism.
The concept of epistemic injustice was introduced by Miranda Fricker and refers to distinctively epistemic forms of injustice. It occupies a rich space at the intersections of ethics, epistemology, and feminist philosophy and is complexly related to wider issues in social and political philosophy.
