Philosophical Inquiry into Pregnancy, Childbirth and Mothering. Deadline Sept. 1, 2009

May 18, 2009 Sep 25, 2009

Philosophy has only begun to recognize the significance of pregnancy, childbirth and mothering. Philosophical inquiry into these phenomena has the potential to challenge long-held views about the nature of subjectivity, freedom, ethics, embodiment, and more. We are seeking philosophical essays that illuminate the character and meaning of pregnancy, childbirth and mothering; that reflexively challenge conventional philosophical views; and that renew our sense of wonder about these phenomena.
