This conference seeks papers on the concept of gender as it relates to our investigations of philosophical ideas. Preference will be given to those who focus on the effect of our gendered experience upon structures of rationality, morality, and intersubjectivity, as well as political discourse and society at large. However, all quality papers will be considered, and students are encouraged to submit any paper which engages gender in a philosophically interesting way. Interdisciplinary papers are encouraged, as well.

Deadline for Submission:  January 31, 2012
