The Richard Rorty Society was founded in 2014 to promote study of the work and life of Richard Rorty (1931-2007), and to encourage and support scholarship and other writing inspired by and in the spirit of his work, across the disciplines.
The International Symposium, “Philosophy as a Transitional Genre: On Richard Rorty’s Intellectual Bequest,” where the society was founded and officially launched, was held May 2-3, 2014 at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York.
The inaugural meeting of the RRS was held September 8-10, 2016 at Hamilton College in New York, and the second meeting was held November 22-24, 2019 at Penn State University in Pennsylvania. Visit the Conference 2016 and Conference 2019 pages for more information.
