Fall 2014 Call for Papers
U.S. – Midwest SWIP Call for Papers
Simpson College (Indianola, IA)
October 10-12, 2014
*Submissions Due: August 13, 2014*
The Midwest Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy invites papers
in all areas of feminist philosophy, theory, and praxis, from political,
ethical and social theory, to epistemology, mind and metaphysics. Because
U.S. Midwest SWIP is especially interested in enriching theorizing and
discussions about ethical and social issues facing our society, we welcome
work that explicitly connects to those discussions and that interrogates
the intersections between race, gender, ability and class. We also welcome
the work of feminist scholars at any stage in their careers.
In honor of the 30th year anniversary of *The Politics of Reality*, we
welcome papers, panels, and workshops on Marilyn Frye’s work.
Submit papers, proposals for panels or performances to: Sonya Charles:
