Call For Proposals: philoSOPHIA 16th Annual Conference June 1-3, 2023 | Hybrid (in-person and virtual) Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Conference Theme:

Southern Movements: Transnational Feminist Praxis and Philosophical Interventions With virtual and in-person keynote speakers:

  • Ochy Curiel, National University of Colombia
  • Jasbir K. Puar, Rutgers University
  • Stephanie Rivera Berruz, Marquette University
  • Lindsey Stewart, University of Memphis

This year, we invite contributions that promote a broad understanding of feminist theorizing and organizing through an examination of both regional and diasporic relations between the U.S. South and the Global South, including relations among African, Indigenous, Caribbean, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and Asian gender/sexuality studies and their U.S. Southern connections. We also encourage dialogue on these regional and diasporic relations within transnational disability theory, global discourses of queer/cuir/quare and trans/travesti studies, and migration studies. 

We welcome proposals that reflect on the conference theme in transnational contexts, including from the plurality of non-European philosophical traditions. All submissions will be considered though work related to the conference theme will be prioritized.
