Minds of our Own: An Anniversary Celebration
2018 will be the 25th anniversary of the publication of Louise Antony and Charlotte Witt’s groundbreaking collection of analytic feminism, A Mind of One’s Own: Feminist Essays on Reason and Objectivity. This volume came out at a time when analytic feminism was in its infancy (and indeed many contended that such a thing was impossible). Its impact was enormous, demonstrating beyond a doubt the richness, variety and worth of analytic feminism, including groundbreaking work on the history of philosophy.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary, there will be a conference at MIT, 9-11 November 2018.
We invite submission of papers on any topic in feminist philosophy with a special interest in papers touching on reason and objectivity. Submission deadline: April 1, 2018.
