Conference Theme: Women in Philosophy: Why Race and Gender Still Matter

Keynote: “Whiteness and Women of Color in Feminist Theory or Considerations of Race and Sex Analogies in Contemporary Feminism,” Dr. Donna-Dale Marcano, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Trinity College.

The Eastern Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy invites submissions for its 2012 meeting to be held at Notre Dame of Maryland University on Saturday, April 28, 2012. This year’s conference theme is “Women in Philosophy: Why Race and Gender Still Matter.” Although “intersectionality,” the difficult yet productive attempt to theorize race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, etc. together, has been a conceptual framework for more than a decade in the U.S. academy, it is almost entirely absent as a recognized philosophical theme or framework within the larger discipline of philosophy. We invite submissions that promote and engage intersectionality, as well as submissions that bring attention to the work of woman philosophers and/or women in philosophy.

Deadline for Submission: Friday, March 30, 2012.

Please send a 250-300 word abstract to:
Maeve O’Donovan, modonovan@ndm.edu
Namita Goswami, namita.goswami@indstate.edu
Lisa Yount, yountlisa@gmail.com
