Original Post (April 22, 2009): Nietzsche in New York (NiNY) is an annual meeting of scholars whose research focuses on Nietzsche's philosophy and related areas. It is intended to be a productive, interactive event where we help each other define problems and ways of addressing them. NiNY aims to build a community that provides one of the only opportunities in the United States for specialists and researchers in allied sub-fields to discuss Nietzsche (and related topics) over the course of several days. The primary goals are to share information and give and receive helpful criticism of recent and new research. Papers and presentations need not be strictly limited to discussion of Nietzsche; works on areas of contemporary philosophy to which Nietzsche is relevant are certainly welcome. NiNY 2009 speakers are: Babette Babich (Fordham/Georgetown) Jessica Berry (Georgia State) Dan Conway (Texas A&M) Christian Emden (Rice) Ken Gemes (Birkbeck/Southampton) Robert Guay (Binghamton) Dirk Johnson (Hampden-Sydney) Mark Migotti (Calgary) Martine Prange (Amsterdam) Simon Robertson (Southampton) Heike Schotten (UMass Boston) Gary Shapiro (Richmond) Further information is here:
