GCC-related query: Women on Feyerabend?

A request for suggestions of women doing relevant scholarship:

I am planning a conference on Paul Feyerabend’s philosophy in Sept 2012 at the Humboldt-University zu Berlin, Germany. A call for papers will be issued early next year. Unfortunately… Some 16 confirmed invited speakers, all men. My question is, do you have any concrete suggestions, or contacts who might?

  1. What’s the angle and how broad are you going with this? If you’re willing to go a bit interdisciplinary and invite “science studies” folks who are also knowledgeable about philosophy, Evelyn Fox Keller and Sandra Harding are the first names to come to mind.

  2. Elizabeth Lloyd — isn’t she at Indiana? She contributed to a Feyerabend anthology back in the day.

  3. I think this will be a particularly tough one without broadening the scope a bit.

    You might reach out to Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach (Konstanz University).

  4. Helen Longino has discussed Feyerabend some in her work, though I don’t know if she’d consider her work close enough to fit the conference. She might be worth considering,though.

  5. Juliet Floyd, Boston U. Published an excellent paper on Feyerabend a few years ago:
    “Homage to Vienna: Feyerabend on Wittgenstein (and Austin and Quine)”, in K.R.Fischer & F.Stadler (eds.), Paul Feyerabend (1924 – 1994) – Ein Philosoph aus Wien, Springer Verlag.

  6. Thanks so very much, all. I’ve passed your comments along to the conference organizer. You made a difference!

  7. Is the call for papers for this conference out? I tried to find it on google, but wasn’t able to. Would you mind posting it here if and when it is out?
