A Conference in Memory of Peter Kivy

Emeritus faculty. Peter KivyA Conference in Memory of Peter Kivy (1934-2017) 

Over the course of his 49 year career (48 years of which were spent at Rutgers), Peter established himself as a giant in the field of aesthetics, especially in the philosophy of music. Sadly, Peter passed away in 2017.  To honor his memory, the Rutgers Philosophy Department is hosting a one-day conference on October 26, 2018, celebrating his life's philosophical work.

The Conference will include talks by Christy Mag Uidhir (Houston), Jenefer Robinson (Cincinnati), Jerrold Levinson  (Maryland), and David Davies (McGill).  In addition, Aaron Meskin (Leeds) will introduce and read Peter Kivy's unpublished 'The Case of (Digital) Wagner.' Finally, there will be a time set aside for remembrances from Peter's friends and colleagues.

All are welcome to attend the conference. There is no registration fee; however, attendees are encouraged to pre-register (so that we have an accurate headcount for the lunch and reception). To pre-register, please email us at kivymemorial@philosophy.rutgers.edu
