#4 The Philosopher Queen Lalla (presented by Dr. Shalini Sinha)

In the Philosopher Queens Seminar Series we learn about and discuss the work of philosophers from the book “Philosopher Queens” (ed. by Rebecca Buxton and Lisa Whiting, Unbound, 2020). The aim of this series is to introduce the audience, especially undergrad students, to the work of female philosophers and to bring attention to the issue of epistemic and structural injustice within the academic philosophy and philosophical ‘canon’. By asking contributors of the “Philosopher Queens” to participate in this event, we also wish to promote contemporary underrepresented philosophers.

Philosopher Queens Seminar Series #3


Presented by Dr. Shalini Sinha


In this edition of the Philosopher Queens Seminar Series we will learn about Lalla, a Kashmiri poet,  Hindu philosopher and mystic (1320–1392).

The seminar starts with a presentation by Dr. Shalini Sinha (University of Reading) who will introduce us to the life and work of Lalla, followed by an open discussion based on the talk and a (optional) pre-circulated text.
