ANU Philosophy PhD student Nick Willis has been awarded the 2022 AAP Postgraduate Presentation Prize for his paper Innovating over gappy resources – blame and hermeneutical injustice. This paper argues that contrary to Fricker’s arguments (2007), individuals may be culpable for communicative hermeneutical injustices as they often have control over the resources used to communicate their experiences to others. When gaps in a common language are encountered, users of that language may innovate across those gaps. As such, every case of communicative hermeneutical injustice is an instance of failed linguistic innovation.

 

Congratulations Nick on a fascinating paper and wonderful achievement! To read more about the prize and Nick’s paper see: https://aap.org.au/Postgraduate-Presentation-Prize
