CFP: Fall SWIPShop Due 8/20

nyswip

We’re gearing up for our Fall SWIPShop series! Abstracts (approx. 750 words) due August 20, 2013!

The New York Society for Women in Philosophy (NYSWIP) has a monthly workshop, SWIPshop, where philosophers present papers on any topic in the philosophy of gender, sex and sexuality, feminist philosophy, feminist theory, feminism, and related topics.

SWIPshop is a place for philosophers of all genders, all philosophical traditions, and all professional levels (graduate students, junior faculty, senior faculty, retired) to meet as equals and discuss their work in a supportive environment.
Graduate students, in particular, are encouraged to attend SWIPshop and present their work. Each workshop begins with dinner (provided by volunteers) and then we discuss a work-in-progress with the author.

If you’d like to offer a paper-in-progress for discussion at a Fall 2013 workshop, please submit an abstract (approximately 750 words) to swipshop@gmail.com by August 20, 2013. If we have more submissions than workshop spaces, we’ll prioritize submissions by junior scholars, especially graduate students, and select submissions with an eye to diversity of philosophical approaches.
