This closing plenary session reflects on the political scope, purposes and effects of philosophical knowledge production. In particular, it engages with contemporary discussions around epistemic justice and the decolonization of knowledge, and takes up urgent questions around the racialized, gendered and classed character of philosophical fields and projects. Our plenary participants bring specific expertise around issues relating to identity in the production of philosophical knowledge, and we welcome questions from the conference floor in this closing event for Australasian Society for Continental Philosophy 2017.
