In Limbo Conversations
Covid Phil Bib
I am deeply invested in developing and implementing collaborative projects that contribute to an academically fruitful and supportive environment for students and researchers. I am currently a moderator of Indian Philosophy Network, a platform for academic philosophers in India.
Making philosophy relevant to the contemporary issues excites me and I am currently involved in a few projects that reflect the role of philosophy during a crisis situation. I am the Organiser of In Limbo Conversations, a blog-series of conversations with philosophers about the pandemic. This project is done in collaboration with Alan Isaac. Previously, I have also developed and maintained an extensive bibliography of philosophical publications on the pandemic with Jef Delvaux (York University).
February 2021: Workshop on "Writing Philosophy" [KREA University]
Along with academic community outreach, I am committed to spreading awareness about mental health and gender-sexual identity. As a non-binary pansexual, I recognize the importance of a safe space to be vulnerable and to nurture one's identity. Queer-n-Care is a platform for artistic expression of mental health experience of queer community. This project is done in collaboration with Deepshikha Sharma and Maithri Porwal.
