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?
