This year’s conference aims to explore and challenge women’s under-representation in philosophy in three ways. Firstly, by discussing the often-overlooked work of women philosophers, we hope to highlight their legacies and contributions to the discipline. Secondly, by analysing how gender imbalances are reproduced within academic philosophy, we aim to identify effective strategies to counteract these inequalities. Finally, and most importantly, we seek to celebrate the work of contemporary women philosophers, from graduate students to early career researchers and accomplished academics, thus securing space within philosophy for such work to thrive.
The conference is free and open to all. If you have any comments or questions about the conference, please do not hesitate to contact the organisers at [email protected].
Access: The conference will take place in the Faculty of Classics (Room G.21 via Entrance 3). The entrance is wheelchair accessible with no steps and a handrail. There is padded seating in the room and an accessible (gender neutral) toilet. There will be a designated quiet space. There is not a hearing loop or a bsl interpreter. Please use the registration form to indicate any additional features we could provide to make the conference more accessible. You can contact us about access on [email protected].
