Conference | all-day | The International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh)
Founded in 1976, the International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) is an organization committed to promoting discussion, interaction, and cooperation among women in philosophy worldwide. The IAPh’s XVIIth symposium will be held immediately preceding the World Congress of Philosophy taking place in Beijing, and proposes to celebrate women’s diverse historical and contemporary contributions to philosophy, and to highlight the work of female philosophers in all branches of philosophical and feminist inquiry. We particularly invite papers that reflect on globalization and the history of women’s engagement with philosophy and feminism in Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australasia, Africa, and elsewhere, during the past forty-two years, and back to the earliest periods. The conference theme, ‘Women and Philosophy in the Era of Globalization’ is intended to capture the broad scope of contemporary research on historical women philosophers, on feminist ethics, aesthetics, and politics, and on questions of feminist epistemology in multiple cultures. Submissions in other areas of philosophy and feminist theory are also welcome.
