Drew Hyland Archive and Conference




Drew Hyland Archive / Conference 

Drew Hyland has been an integral part of the framework of American continental philosophy since the 1960s. He is the author of many highly influential books and articles dealing with ancient Greek philosophy, 20th century continental philosophy, and the philosophy of sport, and his work has been published into multiple languages. From 1967 until 2014 he taught at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, where we are now proud to be opening the Drew Hyland Archive, a comprehensive collection of his published (and some unpublished) works, academic correspondences, teaching materials, as well as some photographs. 

In celebration of the opening of this archive, which is housed in the Watkinson Library at Trinity, we will be holding a one-day conference on Friday, October 28th. Throughout the afternoon we will have papers presented by scholars directly influenced by Hyland’s work (including former students), followed by a response by Hyland himself. (Full schedule pasted below.) Immediately following the conference there will be a reception in the Watkinson Library during which the Drew Hyland Archive can be viewed. 

For those unable to attend this conference in person, a Zoom link will be provided. 

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Shane Ewegen (shane.ewegen@trincoll.edu) by Oct. 15th.
