The OU Graduate Nietzsche Conference

Friday, October 14, 2022 - 09:00 to Saturday, October 15, 2022 - 17:00

Online

In the not-too-distant past, graduates specialising in the study of Nietzsche’s philosophy were relatively rare. Now we are many. Yet, post-pandemic, there are fewer opportunities to present and discuss our research. The graduate community of Nietzsche scholars at The Open University invites graduate researchers with an interest in this subject to submit papers for our OU Online Graduate Conference on Nietzsche.
