For more information about The New York Society for Women in Philosophy, go to:

We accept submissions of abstracts on any topic in the philosophy of gender, feminist philosophy, feminist theory, queer theory, and related topics. This year we are also welcoming papers on the scholarship of any contemporary or historical woman philosopher (on any philosophical topic).

We are planning three workshops for the spring semester, to take place at the philosophy conference room at Baruch College, Vertical Campus, 55 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, on Fridays from 6:30pm-8pm. Selected presenters are expected to provide a finished paper one week before the workshop to be distributed to attendees in advance. At SWIPshop we have refreshments and workshop the paper.

SWIPshop is a place for philosophers of all genders, all philosophical traditions, and all professional levels (graduate students, junior faculty, senior faculty, emerita) to meet as equals and discuss their work in a supportive environment. Graduate students, in particular, are encouraged to attend SWIPshop and present their work.

When making selection decisions, we prioritize work by junior scholars and graduate students, and aim to have workshops on a diversity of topics.
