Our key aims are to bring people and ideas together, to promote a curriculum, to incite projects, to develop standards, to work with similar organisations and to advance doing philosophy with children. So, we do hope you can join us online to carry that on in spite of the restrictions.
To register for the event and gain access to all of the live workshops as well as discussion groups, please register.
This year we are inviting you to enjoy the luxury of your own home as we bring SOPHIA to you. The dates will stay the same as planned the 11th and 12th of July thought the timetable and the theme will be different as the Romania meeting will be carried over into 2021.
THEME: PHILOSOPHISING IN LOCKDOWN
This theme calls for workshops on doing philosophy with children online, or other ways of reaching out to young people during these interesting times. Have you been running online dialogues, or using other ways of helping children think through philosophical questions at home? Perhaps you have sessions that have meaning right now, or that could help people through feelings of isolation. Or should we be looking to the original Greek meaning of Schole: leisure or free time? How can we use this lockdown to develop ourselves and our communities for the future?
CONTENT AND TIMETABLE
The meeting will be hosted online over the weekend of July the 11th and 12th, 2020. We are aiming for 2 half days and we are able to run presentations, workshops, discussion groups and hopefully an evening online drinks event on Saturday. The final timetable will be confirmed in June and sent to everyone who paid membership and the ticket.
CALL FOR PAPERS
The call for papers deadline is 30th April.
All submissions will receive a response by Friday May the 8th.
