This timely conference uses the teachings of Emmanuel Levinas to engage the current pandemic of Covid-19 and the new virtual horizon in which we find ourselves engaging in pedagogy and praxis.  The 2020 conference features nearly 30 presentations from presenters from around the world.  There will be two book sessions, by Richard Sugarman and Annabel Herzog, highlighting their newly published books on Levinas, and two Keynote Addresses, by Georges Hansel and Sandor Goodhart.
