Topic areas


Join us at the Central APA in Denver for a unique opportunity! For the first time, the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women is an affiliated group of the APA and is hosting its first APA session. This session will bring the philosophical arguments and themes of early modern women (especially on political theory and practice, theories of justice, oppression, normative theories, and philosophy of action) in conversation with those of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The content of the joint session is broadly construed, but with an eye toward contributions that draw from, or are indebted to, the work of early modern women and Dr. King. Differences and similarities will be discussed in view of historical and contemporary lenses. Contributions that integrate current political realities are especially encouraged.

Final paper presentations will be capped at a maximum of 20 minutes, and there will be sufficient time for audience feedback on each paper, and our session will emphasize dialogue among participants and session attendees.

Please send your working title and a brief abstract (200 words) to the program chair, Dwight Lewis, [email protected], or session organizer, Jill Hernandez, at [email protected] by September 15, 2018.
