Feminist-Pragmatist Colloquium

May 11, 2019 Jun 16, 2019

2020 (less than two months from this conference date) is a historical year, marking the 200th birthday of Susan B. Anthony, the 202nd birthday of Frederick Douglass,
and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Rochester, New York, was the home for both Anthony and Douglass and Seneca Falls (driving distance from Rochester)
hosted the first Women’s Rights Convention. In addition, Rochester and Seneca Falls are also within the traditional Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) territory,
which is not only the oldest living participatory democracy, but also a confederacy that was matrilineal and inspired first-wave feminism.
It is our honor to acknowledge this rich history and these various traditions with a conference. We welcome your participation.

Interested individuals may submit electronic abstracts that explore, challenge, deepen, or consider further topics, theories, and theorists related to social justice, women rights,
civil rights, Indigenous rights, oppression, and/or related topics. Though primarily a philosophy conference, we welcome submissions from all disciplines and from scholars, students,
community leaders, or activists.

Abstracts for traditional papers (500 words), posters (500 words), and works in development (100-200 words) (for the Scholar’s Circle/writing workshop) are welcomed.

CONFERENCE FORMAT: Mix of traditional presentations, poster sessions, Scholar Circle (writing workshop), and traveling/touring elements.
