IAPh 2021 Workshop: Women Philosophers in the Arab World

Ana Rodrigues from Paderborn University and Zeineb Ben Saïd-Cherni are organizing a workshop for our conference IAPh – Defining the Future, Rethinking the Past in July.

So far, the perception of Arabic-speaking philosophy in Europe has been limited to classical male authors such as al-Fārābī, Ibn Sīnā and Ibn Rušd. Nevertheless, recent research such as the work of Tamara Albertini challenges this predominant perception of philosophy in the Islamic world. There have been important contributions by women such as Rābiʿa al-ʿAdawiyya al-Qaysiyya of Basra or ‘A’Ishah Al-Ba’uniyyah of Damascus. This workshop aims at contributing to an increased visibility of female philosophers in the Arab World in history and today. We invite contributions on any epoque and any topic.
