and 2021-22 Visiting Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University, will be the keynote of the conference.
Her book Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of a Self revolutionized philosophical approaches to trauma,
repair, and personal identity.
In honor of the twentieth anniversary of its publication, the conference theme will be AFTERMATH, in all its senses.
We ask participants to consider how aftermath, as a concept worthy of philosophical investigation, is related to
challenges to traditional discourse.
How has aftermath been discussed in the history of philosophy, or overlooked?
How has feminist philosophical scholarship taken into account the complexities of thinking about history and time?
The conference organizers would like to emphasize this conference is intended to promote and support the work of
all women-identified and non-binary philosophers. People of all genders are invited to submit and attend.
We invite papers and panel proposals from all areas of philosophy and philosophical approaches lying within
or outside feminist philosophy, including analytic, continental, and historically oriented philosophy.
Submissions not directly related to the conference theme are also welcome.
Submission Deadline: March 18, 2022 (1000-word abstracts for eventual 3000-word papers)
