Call for abstracts – CW*IP 22
The 9th annual Conference by Women, Genderqueer and Non-Binary Philosophers will take place on 24 June at the University of Antwerp. The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for graduate and undergraduate philosophers to present their work to peers.
In this way we hope to create an opportunity for young philosophers (BA, MA, PhD, recent alumnae) to inspire, support and motivate one another and to forge potentially productive alliances. The conference features at least one plenary talk by a distinguished keynote speaker (t.b.a.).
We want to encourage a wide array of submissions from women, non-binary, and queer people, groups who have been historically underrepresented in academic philosophy.
We wish to challenge this situation – whilst being aware of the fact that the marginal positioning of women in philosophy also depends on factors other than their gender, such as ethnicity, religion, social status, age, disability or sexual orientation.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
We invite submissions by women, non-binary and queer philosophers for papers in any area of academic philosophy. Submissions should take the form of abstracts. Abstracts should be written in English.
Papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation. There will be a respondent for each paper. You are expected to hand in the final paper roughly one month before the conference so that your respondent may read it. Papers may not have been published before — one of our goals is to give meaningful feedback by respondents on work in progress (student papers are eligible). Abstracts for papers should be fully anonymised, should not exceed 500 words and can be submitted here.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 7 MARCH 2022.
If you are a supervisor, please encourage your students to respond to our call. Also feel free to distribute the call through any suitable channels that you may know.
Everyone is welcome to attend the conference. Online participation will be free of charge. The conference fee for attending in Antwerp is €10. More information about this will be sent along with our Call for Registration later this year.
The conference is organised by PhD candidates from several universities across Europe.
