SOCIETY FOR WOMEN IN PHILOSOPHY (SWIP) AUTUMN CONFERENCE
UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM (22—23 NOVEMBER 2007)

JUSTICE AND GENDER
Keynote speaker: Professor Alison Jaggar

A crucial and ongoing task of feminist philosophy is revealing the ways in which gender systems have led to injustice. Feminist analyses of institutions, cultural assumptions, and social practices that result in disadvantage have transformed traditional political philosophy. We solicit full papers (to be presented in forty minutes) discussing any aspect of the intersection between gender and justice. Submissions from graduate students are very welcome.

Possible topics include (but are not restricted to):

  • The concept of gender
  • Family life
  • Feminism and culture
  • Models of discrimination
  • Reproductive rights
  • Extended deadline for submissions: 1st October 2007
    Authors are requested to prepare papers for blind review. Please ensure that your name, address, affiliation and any self-identifying citations do not appear in the main body of the paper

    Electronic submissions (preferred format) should be sent to: komarine.romdenh-romluc@nottingham.ac.uk. Please put ‘SWIP submission’ in the subject heading. If you do not receive acknowledgement of your submission within two working days, please send it again.

    Paper submissions can be sent to:
    Dr. Komarine Romdenh-Romluc,
    Department of Philosophy,
    University of Nottingham,
    Nottingham, NG7 2RD
    UK
