The MAP chapter at the University of Lisbon and IfilNova (Lisbon Mind, Cognition, and Knowledge Group and ArgLab) invite submissions from philosophers at all career stages for the Lisbon Feminist Philosophy of Mind Workshop. We are seeking submissions to present and to participate as a commentator-at large. We especially welcome submissions from philosophers from marginalized groups (including but not limited to trans and queer philosophers, racialized philosophers, and disabled philosophers), and from philosophers at early career stages.

Possible topics include but are not limited to: 

  • The nature of bias and prejudice and their cognitive and perceptual implementation; 

  • The internalization of oppressive social structures;

  • The psychology of social norms;

  • Culture, gender, and the mind; 

  • Gender essentialism and its cognitive implementation;

  • The nature and psychology of social identities; 

  • The role of attention and salience structures in bias; 

  • Feminist approaches to traditional questions in philosophy of mind, such as the mind-body problem; 

  • Decolonial and Latinx approaches to philosophy of mind;
