Theoretical papers on all topics within the areas of feminist ethics and social theory are welcome. The program committee aims to create a conference with a diverse group of presenters and a diversity of philosophical topics and styles. Proposals for presentations other than papers (e.g., workshops, discussions, etc.) should include detailed descriptions demonstrating that the ideas are as developed as they would be in a paper.

FEAST strongly encourages members of groups that are underrepresented in both the discipline of philosophy and at feminist philosophy conferences to send submissions.

Submissions, for either paper or panel sessions, should consist of papers no longer than 3,000 words and abstracts of 100-250 words.

Please send your submission, in one document (a Word file, please, so that abstracts can be posted), to mcrouch@emich.edu by February 28, 2011. Your document should include: paper title, abstract, paper, with no identifying information. The word count (max. 3,000) should appear on the top of the first page of your paper. Panel organizers, please send the panel title and all three abstracts and papers in one document, along with word counts (3,000 for each paper). In the body of the email message, please include: your paper or panel title, name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, surface mail address, and phone number. All submissions will be anonymously reviewed.
