Take it to the Bridge:

Crossing between Analytic and Continental Feminist Philosophies

October 4-7, 2012

Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, USA

 Submission deadline: May 30, 2012

Take it to the bridge: 1. (In music) A phrase that connotes a change of key, a connecting but distinctive series of notes

The Society for Analytical Feminism invites long abstracts (1000-1500 words) on all topics in feminist philosophy.  Analytical approaches to feminist topics are happily invited as usual.

In addition, special consideration will be given to abstracts that bridge feminist analytical and continental approaches, including the history of the analytic/continental “divide” in philosophy, mutually informing applications of analytic and continental philosophical methods to specific questions, analyses of the work of philosophers who bridge analytic and continental traditions or of collaborations between analytic and continental philosophers, methodological debates about the study of philosophy, including the value of different traditions, theoretical accounts of pluralism in philosophy.

  1. When I saw “take it to the bridge” I thought we were FINALLY doing a conference on James Brown. So bummed.

  2. Ruth, that is exactly the allusion I was going for with that conference name! But alas, he’s only the inspiration for the title, not the topic.
