The network Feminist Philosophy: Time, history and the transformation of thought (2017-2019), invites scholars to Saulkrasti, Latvia, 26 July–2 August 2017.
The aim of the conference is to create a space for critical feminist practices of reading. We want to develop and draw connections between philosophy and feminist theory, informed by historical perspectives. How can feminism revitalize philosophy and interpretations of its history? What would a philosophical feminism look like? What would it mean to read feminist theory historically?
The meeting in Saulkrasti is the second out of a total of six conferences during a three-year period.
The first conference Feminist Utopias was held in collaboration with the University of Iceland in March 2017, attracting about 60 scholars from all over the world.
