This will be a multi-disciplinary conference on gender with three primary goals in mind:

1. To discuss gender assumptions underpinning critical social, cultural, and legal norms and discussions

2. To promote space for multi-disciplinary thinking and research on these issues

3. To bring special attention to recent debates over the status of women in the field of Philosophy.

We invite contributions on any topic related to gender, and particularly on those connected to the following themes:

  1. Gender and Knowledge
  2. Gender and Social Justice
  3. Gender and Discrimination
  4. Gender and Science

Additionally, special consideration will be given to submissions concerning women in philosophy.
