FEMINIST UTOPIAS: TRANSFORMING THE PRESENT OF PHILOSOPHY

HISTORICAL AND CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES

Conference at the University of Iceland and workshop in Skálholt, Iceland, 30th of March to 2nd of April 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS

Some of the most ground-breaking inventions in contemporary philosophy have come from feminist philosophy. However, the transformative potential of feminist philosophy for renewing the discipline in terms of canon, concepts, histories, institutional cultures, content, and plurality of styles has not yet been actualized. The feminist utopias envisioned by feminist philosophers across traditional philosophical divides and cultures possess the potential for invigorating philosophy.
