Pre-Read Workshop on Miranda Fricker's, Epistemic Injustice

The aim of this workshop is to explore the concept of epistemic injustice, which reveals an

ethical dimension of epistemic life. We will read Miranda Fricker’s book Epistemic Injustice

- Power & the Ethics of Knowing. She investigates testimonial injustice, in which someone is

wronged in their capacity as a giver of knowledge, and hermeneutical injustice, in which

someone is wronged in their capacity as a subject of social understanding.
