Guelph Conference- The Philosophy of Horror

Date and Time



14 Carden ST. Guelph, Ontario


Occulted, Estranged and Inhuman Knowledges, hosted in Guelph, ON by members of the “Philosophy in the Dark” reading group, presents knowledge as a principle topic for interrogation through the mediums of philosophy, horror film, literature, visual arts and music. Knowledge (human and inhuman), the lack of knowledge, its perversion or theft, and the undermining of thought itself are all chief interests to our gathering.

Drawing on academic papers, artistic (visual,musical) presentations and round-table discussions, Occulted, Estranged and Inhuman Knowledges invites scholars and publics to explore the dark.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
