Georgia Philosophical Society Annual Meeting 2020

We welcome papers in any area of philosophy, but are particularly interested in papers that engage the theme of “Suffrage and Democracy” in any of a wide variety of ways. In observance of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the U.S., we invite contributors to consider presenting on topics in political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and gender studies including, but not limited to:

·         Voting rights and access, e.g: current debates about voter registration or about the disenfranchisement of groups such as immigrants and ex-felons

·         Democracy in general, e.g.: democratic vs. other forms of government; the ethics of representative government; the duty to be informed.

·         Gender or sexuality issues, e.g.: persistent problems of gender or sexuality inequality and subordination, or intersections among gender, sexuality, and other identities.
