Call for Abstracts: Gender and the idea of Autonomy(deadline extended)
The University of Bristol MAP Chapter is delighted to announce a one-day symposium on Gender and the idea of Autonomy, held on June 5th 2017, free for all participants.
We are looking for papers responding to our topic from within a variety of feminist schools. We are especially interested in the feminist perspectives of non-Anglo-American traditions, such as African, Islamic, and Chinese philosophy. Related themes include (but is not limited to):
-Relationality and individual agency
-Coercion and choice
-Concepts of freedom and liberty
-Oppression in socialization
-Religion and the role of feminism
-Multiculturalism and gender
Your talk should be confined to a 40-minute slot (which consists of a 25-minute presentation and 15-minute Q&A) and accessible to any audience without specialist knowledge of your topic.
Please submit an anonymized 500 word (maximum) abstract, along with a separate document stating your name, level of study, and institutional affiliation, to our organizers at: firstname.lastname@example.org before 10th April, 2017. We will notify the authors of our decisions by the following week.
Unfortunately we are unable to cover attendees’ travel or accommodation costs at the moment so we encourage you to seek other means of funding. We will, however, provide refreshments as well as lunch for attendees on the day.
We will release more information about our venue on our website as the event nears. Please notify us in advance, through email, of any concerns and needs you may have and we will do our best to accommodate them.
