Conference in Honor of Alison Jaggar

From Barrett Emerick:

I am very happy to announce: “In the Unjust Meantime: A Conference in Honor of Alison M. Jaggar” The 2014 Morris Colloquium at the University of Colorado Boulder will celebrate the work of Alison Jaggar, UC-B College Professor of Distinction in Philosophy and Women and Gender Studies. The conference will feature keynote speakers Vicky (Elizabeth) Spelman, Claudia Card, and Alison Jaggar. In addition to the keynotes, there will be panel presentations by professional philosophers who studied with Jaggar at UC-B and who currently work in “non-ideal theory.” The Morris Colloquium immediately precedes the Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress (RoME). All are welcome to attend both events. There is no registration fee for the Jaggar conference. For more information, please visit the conference website.

U.S. – Midwest SWIP Call for Papers

Simpson College (Indianola, IA)

October 10 – 12, 2014

Submissions Due: August 13, 2014

The Midwest Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy invites papers in all areas of feminist philosophy, theory, and praxis – from political, ethical and social theory, to epistemology, mind and metaphysics. Because U.S. Midwest SWIP is especially interested in enriching theorizing and discussions about ethical and social issues facing our society, we welcome work that explicitly connects to those discussions and that interrogates the intersections between race, gender, ability and class. We also welcome the work of feminist scholars at any stage in their careers.

 In honor of the 30th year anniversary of The Politics of Reality, we welcome papers, panels, and workshops on Marilyn Frye’s work.

Submit papers, proposals for panels or performances to:  Sonya Charles [s.charles07 at csuohio dot edu]
