Conference: Women in Philosophy
5 July 2018 - 6 July 2018
For the fifth year in a row, the Conference by Women in Philosophy will be held in Amsterdam. This year’s conference will take place on Friday 6 July at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for undergraduate and graduate women philosophers to present their work to their peers. In this way we hope to create an opportunity for young women philosophers to inspire and motivate one another and to forge potentially productive alliances. The conference features a plenary discussion with a keynote speaker (t.b.a.) about the position of women in philosophy, as well as workshops on applying for grants and drafting a good CV. We are excited to announce that the workshops will be held as a pre-conference event on Thursday 5 July. In the Netherlands, like in the rest of the world, women are underrepresented in academic philosophy. Being young women ourselves, we want 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 sex, like ethnicity, religion, social status, age, disability or sexual orientation. We are committed to creating a more balanced environment and to empowering (those identifying as) women to make the academic space their own.
