CFP: Emancipation

A partial quote from the announcement:

Hypatia: AJournal of Feminist Philosophy Special Issue:

Emancipation: Rethinking Subjectivity, Power and Change

Volume 30, Issue 3, Summer 2015
Guest Editor: Susanne Lettow, University of Paderborn (Germany)

Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy seeks contributions for a special issue on “Emancipation: Rethinking Subjectivity, Power and Change.” ‘Emancipation’ is one of the most iridescent concepts of political language and has – from the late eighteenth century on – inspired feminist politics, theory and critique. While the concept of emancipation almost vanished from political discourse in the wake of the critiques of the ambivalent legacies of the Enlightenment and Modernity, the concept resurfaces again in the present which is shaped by the multiple and highly gendered crises of politics, economies, nature and culture. A re-evaluation of ‘emancipation’ and its political and philosophical implications from a feminist perspective is thus imperative.

  1. Since that journal is priced way out of my league, I humbly request some posts addressing some of the papers. The need for the emancipation of women seems fundamental and obvious to me, so I’m happy to see dialogue on the idea being cultivated in a feminist philosophy journal.
