Aug 25, 2017 → Aug 01, 2018Hypatia Special Issue: Indigenizing and Decolonizing Feminist Philosophy Vol. 35, 1, Winter 2020
Guest Editors: Celia Bardwell-Jones and Margaret A. McLaren
This special issue of Hypatia brings feminism and Indigenous thought together in constructive dialogue to contribute to a broadening of perspectives, and to decolonize standard philosophical thinking, which is grounded in colonial norms and standards. Feminist philosophy has a legacy of expressing concern for diverse claims of minority groups, including Indigenous people, while at the same time frequently ignoring philosophy’s role in perpetuating colonial domination within philosophical scholarship. Thus, feminism can be perceived as either useless or damaging to Indigenous people. Decolonizing feminism philosophy involves challenging dominant modes of thinking and analysis; specifically, it involves the unsettling of Eurocentric assumptions and values. We encourage submissions that engage non-European philosophical perspectives and address issues of colonialism in a variety of contexts and geographical locations not limited to North America and Europe, but also including, South America, Australia, Africa, Asia, and the island regions of the Pacific and the Caribbean.
May 18, 2018 → Aug 01, 2018Call for Chapter Proposals: Transgender Narratives
Co-editors Kristi Carter and James Brunton (Women's Press) are in search of works concerning transgender experiences and issues that make them distinct
from other narratives of identity within the LGBTQIA+ community. These pieces can be scholarly OR creative, by single or multiple authors,
but all should be constructed with an undergraduate audience in mind.
As intersectionality becomes a more familiar discourse framework in both formal and informal channels of activism and conversation,
we expect pieces to address multiple aspects of identity, but with a focus on transgender, gendernonconforming (GNC), genderqueer, or
nonbinary (NB) narratives.
Expected length of abstract: 200-250 words. Deadline: July 31, 2018.
