#MeToo, Motivated Ignorance, and the Epistemic Value of Storytelling (IF.. Series)
The Interdisciplinary Feminisms (IF..) Series Presents Karyn Freedman (Philosophy) speaking on #MeToo, Motivated Ignorance, and the Epistemic Value of Storytelling. In this paper Freedman explores the epistemic value of #MeToo testimonials for the teller, when believed; for the marginalized hearer, when experiences like hers are represented by others; and for society at large, when dominant narratives are disrupted.
This event takes place in THINC Lab, 2nd floor, library.
