Fall 2011 Midwest SWIP Call for Papers

Northwestern University, November 4 – 6.
Submission Deadline:  August 8, 2011

Extended Deadline:  August 31


The Midwest Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy invites papers in all areas of feminist philosophy, theory, and praxis. Papers ranging from political/ethical/social theory to epistemology, mind and metaphysics are welcome as are panels, performances and other work that engages feminist praxis and theorizing.  Midwest SWIP also especially encourages work that engages the intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality and ability.  In commemoration of the contributions of Sarah Ruddick, who died recently, we welcome papers, panels, and workshops on her work.

Please submit papers, proposals for panels, and panels to: Crista Lebens and Jeanine Weekes Schroer.

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