Pavia, Collegio Giasone del Maino, 11-12 September 2023

This year’s topic is

The Role of Women in the History of Philosophy

The conference is devoted to questions of gender in the history of philosophy, from Antiquity to contemporary philosophy: we are interested in the role of women in the history of philosophy, both as historians of philosophy, and as philosophers themselves, considering especially the stereotypes with which women have been confronted in a traditionally male-dominated discipline. We are also keen to discuss the application of recent philosophical developments on non-binary approaches to the specific field of the history of philosophy, which has been often viewed as bound to a canon, and thus to a certain extent resistant to efforts of rewriting. Ultimately, we ask how bringing attention to the issue of gender can function as a lever to reconsider the status of the history of philosophy as a philosophical practice. We are happy to announce that this year’s key-note addresses will be delivered by:

Maddalena Bonelli, Università di Bergamo

Clara Carus, University of Oxford

Sandra Plastina, Università della Calabria
