IAPh in Australia in 2016. See you there!

Women and Philosophy: History, Values, Knowledge

A conference to be held at Monash University, Caulfield Campus, Melbourne, Australia

7-10 July 2016

Invited speakers: Moira Gatens (Sydney, Australia), Ruth Hagengruber (Paderborn, Germany), Sally Haslanger (MIT, US), Lisa Shapiro (Simon Fraser, Canada)

Founded in 1976, the International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) is an organisation committed to promoting discussion, interaction, and cooperation among women in philosophy worldwide.

In honour of the IAPh’s 40th anniversary, this symposium proposes to celebrate women’s diverse historical and contemporary contributions to philosophy, and to highlight the work of female philosophers in all branches of philosophical and feminist inquiry.

We particularly invite papers that reflect on the history of women’s engagement with philosophy and feminism in Europe, the Americas, Australasia, Asia, Africa, and elsewhere, during the past forty years, and back to the earliest periods.

The conference themes of history, values, and knowledge reflect the broad scope of contemporary research on historical women philosophers, on feminist ethics and politics, and on questions of feminist epistemology.

Submissions in other areas of philosophy and feminist theory are also welcome.

The main conference organisers are Karen Green (Melbourne) and Jacqueline Broad (Monash).
