The organizing committee invites submissions of abstracts to be considered for a CSWIP roundtable session, which will take place as part of the Hypatia 2015 Conference. This year’s theme Canadian Collaborations, aims to showcase the range of collaborative experiences within Canadian feminist philosophy. We invite submissions on any area in feminist philosophy.

In order to be considered for the roundtable, please submit a 250 word abstract by December 1, 2014 to Nikoo Najand (on behalf of the organizing committee) at n.najand@queensu.ca. Please include your name, affiliation, and contact information.

We are interested in exploring this year’s topic “Canadian’s Play nice?: Feminist Philosophical Frictions, Collaborations, and Friendships” in a variety of contexts, including, but not limited to:

• Exploring feminist friendships and collaboration
• Intersectionality in Canadian feminist collaboration
• Exploring social and cultural dimensions of Canadian feminist collaboration
• Genealogical approaches to collaborative tensions
• Dissonant frictions that animate collaborative work
• Exploring collaborative tension, hostility, and violence within feminist philosophy and relationships
• Constructive approaches to disagreement within feminist philosophy
• Challenges and challenging other subfields as feminist philosophers
