The aim is to genealogically map and trace this particular strand of thinking and ideation, as it was one of the many rich diverse strandsthat Indian women thinking represent. In ways of a hermeneutical exercise, each of the above-mentioned thinkers shall be engaged with through a representative text.

In the Slot from 5pm tp 6pm on the 25th the Keynote Speaker Samantha Matherne will present ‘The Aesthetic Theory of Edith Landmann-Kalischer’.

On the following day, the 26th of Febuary, Julia Borcherding from the University of Cambridge will present ‘Crossing the Divide – Conway’s and Cavendish’s ‘Spiritualization’ of Matter’. In this talk, she shows that both Conway and Cavendish contribute in important ways to the reconfiguration and enrichment of the concept of matter which took place during the 17th and 18th centuries, and which may still hold important lessons for us today.

The Keynote Speaker Pedro Pricladnitzky, Professor of Philosophy at the Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná will hold a talk on ‘The Principle of Individuation in Cavendish’s Metaphysics’. In this talk, he offers an interpretation of the principle of individuation and the ontological status of individual bodies in the work of Margaret Cavendish.
