Levinas conference

North American Levinas Society

We are pleased to announce the following confirmed plenary speakers:
• Robert Bernasconi (Penn State University)
• Adriaan Peperzak (Loyola University, Chicago)
• Lisa Guenther (Vanderbilt University). Professor Guenther’s talk is generously sponsored by Société Internationale de Recherche Emmanuel Levinas (SIREL)
We are also pleased to announce that Georges Hansel will again deliver his annual TalmudicReading. Continuing in the tradition of Levinas’s Talmudic readings, which he delivered at the annual colloquia of French speaking Jewish intellectuals in Paris, Prof. Hansel’s readings have become a celebrated tradition of our conferences.  Additionally, we will have a Scholar's session honoring the work of Alphonso Lingis (Penn State, emeritus).  Steven Shankman (University of Oregon) will give the presentation for the  Levinas and pedagogy session.
