CFP Extended deadline BayFAP 2019 Workshop

NEW DEADLINE: 15 DECEMBER!

CFP BayFAP 2019
https://sites.google.com/view/bayfapworkshop/home

The 2019 Bay Area Feminism and Philosophy (BayFAP) Workshop will be held at the University of San Francisco from May 20-22. BayFAP is different from typical conferences in important ways—if you’re not familiar with it, please read this CFP carefully.

Because BayFAP is a workshop-style conference, participants are expected to read all of the papers in advance, to attend all of the sessions, and to come prepared for discussion. You should only submit or volunteer if you plan on reading all of the papers in advance and attending all of the sessions.

There are four ways to participate in the BayFAP: (1) have your paper selected for the program; (2) be a chair or commentator; (3) referee; (4) be part of the USF or Sac State philosophy departments.

Conference attendance is limited to those on the program, organizers, referees, and members of the University of San Francisco Philosophy Department and the Sacramento State Philosophy Department (i.e., faculty and students). This is due to funding and logistical constraints, together with the fact that the BayFAP is a workshop-style conference that involves in-depth discussions of works-in-progress.

TO SUBMIT A PAPER

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, and prepared for anonymous review. Please include a cover page with the following information:

The title of your paper
Your name and contact information
An abstract
Word count (including all notes and bibliography)
Email your paper to bayfapworkshop at gmail dot com. The subject line of your email should read: BayFAP 2019 Submission.

The conference does not have any specific theme or topic. We will consider submissions in any area of feminist philosophy, broadly construed. The strict word limit is 8,000 words, but shorter papers (under 8000 words) have a better chance of being accepted. Do not submit published work, or work for which you wouldn’t be able to incorporate feedback from BayFAP in any subsequent published version. Authors will be notified of the organizers’ decisions by late January, 2019.

Philosophers who are unable to travel to San Francisco due to immigration restrictions or mobility issues are nevertheless invited to submit papers. If your paper is selected, we will be happy to discuss the possibility of arranging remote participation via Zoom. (There is no need to flag this with your submission. You can let us know on acceptance.)

TO VOLUNTEER

You can also participate in BayFAP by volunteering to referee, chair, and/or comment. You do not have to submit a paper in order to volunteer. Volunteer referees should be willing and able to read up to five papers in their areas of expertise between December 15, 2018 and January 15, 2019.

Referees will be notified in early December. Chairs and commentators will be notified in early February 2019.

To volunteer at BayFAP please email bayfapworkshop at gmail dot com. If you are also submitting a paper, please send a separate email indicating your interest in being a BayFAP volunteer.

The subject line of your email should read: BayFAP 2019 Volunteer. Your email should include:

Your name
Your contact information
Your AOS and AOCs
The roles for which you would like to volunteer (i.e., referee, chair, and/or comment)
FINANCIAL AID

BayFAP is sponsored by the Fleischacker Fund for Philosophy at the University of San Francisco. We have a (very!) limited budget to assist with costs for participants who lack access to research funding.

Relaunch: Simone de Beauvoir Studies

Announcing the relaunch of Simone de Beauvoir Studies!

Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is currently accepting submissions. Please find more information including the call for papers for the first special issue, “Beauvoir in Conversation,” and a call for guest editors at http://www.brill.com/sdbs. SdBS is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship relevant to the writings, thinking, and legacy of Simone de Beauvoir. SdBS places particular emphasis on recognizing diverse social, cultural, and disciplinary receptions of Beauvoir’s thought and on featuring cutting-edge approaches to the investigation of her oeuvre. In addition to articles that discuss Beauvoir’s writings directly, the journal publishes pieces that connect to central themes in Beauvoir’s oeuvre such as gender, race, sexuality, literary theory, and global politics. Articles are published in English and French.

An institutional subscription to SdBS will give students and faculty on your campus electronic access not only to the current volume of the journal (Vol. 30, Spring and Fall 2019), but also to all 29 previously published volumes of SdBS (1983-2013). To order , ask your librarian to contact brillna@turpin-distribution.com 844-232-3707 (toll free) or 860-350-0041 (for orders in North and South America) or brill@turpin-distribution.com +44 (0) 1767 604-954 (for orders in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia).
