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.
