CFP: Shaping A More Just Bioethics: A Celebration of the Work of Susan Sherwin
Submission deadline: September 15, 2017
May 26, 2018
Department of Philosophy, Dalhousie University
Topics of the workshop: Feminist Philosophy; Bioethics; Ethics
The format of the workshop
Six abstracts will be accepted for the program on the basis of both their quality and their representation and extension of Sherwin’s work. Authors will be asked to share drafts of their papers with commentators six weeks before the workshop. The goal is not only to help authors prepare papers for publication and have a rigorous and wide-ranging conversation focusing on Sherwin’s work, but also to encourage participation from a wide range of people (as commentators, for instance). Registration for this one-day event will be open to all who want to celebrate Sherwin’s work. We hope to publish papers and commentaries in a special issue of a journal. Discussions are currently underway with the International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (IJFAB).
We invite abstract submissions of 500 words that engage with Sherwin’s scholarship in bioethics, broadly construed. Please note that although Sherwin’s work has been housed in philosophy, her approach is interdisciplinary; abstracts are welcome from an array of disciplines and approaches. Abstracts should be submitted as word, rft or pdf files to SueFest2018@gmail.com by September 15, 2017.
Abstracts of 500 words due: September 15, 2017
