philoSOPHIA 16th Annual Conference June 1-3, 2023

A Multilingual Hybrid Event hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Conference Theme:
Southern Movements:
Transnational Feminist Praxis & Philosophical Interventions

With virtual and in-person keynote speakers:

  • Ochy Curiel, “Aportes del feminismo decolonial desde Abya Yala”
  • Jasbir K. Puar, “Dividual Economies, Of Data, Of Flesh”
  • Stephanie Rivera Berruz, “Morir-Vivir Beyond the Human: Partial Ecological Connections and the Reconceptualization of Life”
  • Lindsey Stewart, “Contributions to Conjure Feminism: Oshun, Mermaids, and Marie Laveau.”

This year, we invited 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 encouraged dialogue on these regional and diasporic relations within transnational disability theory, global discourses of queer/cuir/quare and trans/travesti studies, and migration studies.
