The XVIIIth Symposium of the International Association of Women Philosophers: Defining the Future, Rethinking the Past

Paderborn University, Germany.

The International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) is a decisive organisation in promoting women’s research in philosophy and its history. Founded in Germany in 1976, it is now a global network for all women in philosophy. Given its strong tradition, IAPh covers all philosophical disciplines, feminist philosophy as well as the history of women philosophers.

After venues at Monash University, Melbourne (2016) and Tsinghua University, Beijing (2018), the 18th world congress of IAPh will be hosted by the Center for the “History of Women Philosophers and Scientists” (HWPS) at Paderborn University, Germany.

IAPh 2021 will be devoted to the most pressing issues of our future: In times of rapid technological progress, climate change, and economic turmoil, we invite women’s contributions on the philosophy of economics, philosophy of technology, and ecology/environmental ethics.

Moreover, given the initial aim of IAPh and the research focus of the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists, we also seek to discover and reassess the role of women philosophers. We therefore welcome submissions on historical female thinkers.
