An invitation to feminist philosophers from Hypatia

“We are pleased to invite Feminist Philosophers readers to a free online forum sponsored by Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy and Wiley. Scheduled to run from Aug. 18 to 22, the forum focuses on the issues of climate change and gender and features contributions from scholars and activists, as well as video interviews with experts from a variety of fields. The event will go live starting on Mon., Aug. 18 at No registration is necessary. We look forward to your participation!

In Hypatia 29.3, a special issue on Climate Change, feminist philosophers Chris Cuomo (author of Feminism and Ecological Communities: An Ethic of Flourishing) and Nancy Tuana (author of Feminism and Science) focus critical attention on one of the most pressing social and environmental issues of our day. Policy makers have recently begun to acknowledge the disproportionate impacts of climate change on women and disadvantaged communities, but feminist analyses of the complex epistemic and political dimensions of climate change, as well as its causes and effects, are urgently needed. This special issue initiates a necessary conversation that will deepen our understanding and help identify promising opportunities for positive change. Co-editors Cuomo and Tuana have invited scholars and activists working at the forefront of feminist climate justice to share their perspectives. Watch the interviews online, and join the co-editors in an open forum on the issues on August 18-22, 2014.”
