*Call for papers: Conference by Women in Philosophy (Amsterdam)*
For the fifth year in a row, the Conference by Women in Philosophy will be
held in Amsterdam. This year’s conference will take place on Friday 6 July
at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The goal of the conference is to
provide a platform for undergraduate and graduate women philosophers to
present their work to their peers. In this way we hope to create an
opportunity for young women philosophers to inspire and motivate one
another and to forge potentially productive alliances. The conference
features a plenary discussion with a keynote speaker (t.b.a.) about the
position of women in philosophy, as well as workshops on academic skills.
In the Netherlands, like in the rest of the world, women are
underrepresented in academic philosophy. Being young women ourselves, we
want to challenge this situation - whilst being aware of the fact that the
marginal positioning of women in philosophy also depends on factors other
than their sex, like ethnicity, religion, social status, age, disability or
sexual orientation. We are committed to creating a more balanced
environment and to empowering (those identifying as) women to make the
academic space their own.
We therefore invite (those identifying as) women philosophers (BA, MA, PhD,
recent alumnae) to send in abstracts for paper presentations in any area of
philosophy. We will accept a maximum of approximately 20 papers. If you are
a teacher, please encourage your women students to react to our call. Also
feel free to distribute the call through any suitable channels that you may
