Past activities of this group

Topic & aim

The discipline of feminist philosophy has expanded enormously over the past three decades, now covering all philosophical areas- ethics, political philosophy, metaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, history of philosophy. While feminist philosophy initially focused predominantly on analysing gender inequality and gendered power relations, currently it addresses issues of inequality and exclusion in a broad sense, in relation to other academic fields such as postcolonial theory, environmental studies and political theory. The study group feminist philosophy aims to contribute to the development of feminist philosophy in the Netherlands and stimulate international cooperation.

Set-up & practicalities

The study group meets three times throughout the academic year to discuss work in progress by participants. Dates are set depending on participants’ availability. The study group also organises an annual lecture by a distinguished speaker in the field of feminist philosophy. Other activities include the organisation of an international summer course on feminist philosophy and international publications in cooperation with amongst others SWIP.Nl and IAPh (The International Association of Women Philosophers).
