We invite submissions for the 2013 Hypatia Diversity Essay Prize. This prize is
awarded biennially for the best essay, previously unpublished, written by a
graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, or non-tenured faculty member that
embodies a feminist, intersectional approach in a philosophical analysis
combining categories of identity (e.g., gender, class, disability, ethnicity,
nationality, race, religion, sexuality). In addition to receiving $500, the
winning author(s)’s essay will be published in Hypatia.

The Diversity Essay Prize committee warmly encourages essay submissions! Please

  1. By women of color feminist philosophy, we mean intellectual work done by feminists who take women of color as their primary philosophical touchstones and/or scholarly focus. As such, we invite papers on a wide range of topics. We look forward to new insights concerning the identity and/or existence of “women of color” feminist philosophical scholarship as well as whether and what philosophy and philosophical tools aid or prohibit pursuing and addressing women of color feminist work. We also encourage essays on the process of including women of color’s voices into one’s own academic work. In particular, we hope that this issue will stimulate articulation of the diverse truths inherent to the diversity of women included in the moniker women of color, as it is understood within and against the American context or post-racial, post-feminist sensibilities. To this end, we encourage contributors to explore integrating resources from their particular racial, ethnic, and/or cultural background with an attention to the hazards or victories of such an exploration. We welcome essays ranging from ethical and social political explorations to metaphysical and epistemological concerns. We invite discussion of ways in which the label “women of color” translates and/or does not translate in contexts outside the US as well as whether and how it can be re-appropriated and transformed within international arenas. We also encourage explorations of the relationship and distinctions between women of color feminist philosophy and critical race feminism or transnational feminism including articulations of what makes a work philosophical and how it becomes so.
