Midwest SWIP Call for Papers


University of Wisconsin at Madison

October 22-24, 2010


Submissions Due:  August 9, 2010


The Midwest Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy meeting is an interdisciplinary conference with a particular emphasis on troubling the discipline of philosophy and the theory/practice distinction. 

We invite papers in all areas of feminist philosophy/theory/praxis–from political theory and ethics to metaphysics and epistemology, also panels and performances and other work that engages feminist praxis and theorizing conceived broadly. 

Midwest SWIP has a history of supporting work that engages the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality.


Submit papers, proposals for panels or performances to:
