Feminism at the Crossroads, ESWIP 2009 Spring Meeting

ESWIP Spring Meeting and Conference 2009

"FEMINISM AT THE CROSSROADS"

SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 2009
John Carroll University
Cleveland, Ohio

Keynote Address: TBA

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: February 16, 2009

The Eastern Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy (ESWIP)
kindly invites submissions for its 2009 Spring meeting. Abstracts
(500 words), papers (2500 words), panel proposals, workshop proposals,
performance proposals, and roundtable discussion proposals will be
considered. Proposals for panels should include the names of all
participants and their papers or abstracts. Submissions that address
the conference theme "Feminism at the Crossroads" -- by either engaging
challenging issues in feminist theory and/or by exploring new
directions for the future of feminism -- are particularly welcome. In
addition, submissions that address the general topic of feminist
theory/practice from any disciplinary approach will receive full
consideration. ESWIP strives to provide scholars from all academic
ranks and disciplines with a highly supportive professional community.

All submissions will be anonymously reviewed; names should appear only
on a cover page, and cover pages should be attached in a separate
file. Small Travel Stipends of $100-$200 may be available for
undergraduate and graduate students whose work is accepted at the
conference, and alternate rooming accommodations may be arranged for
students. If you wish to have your submission considered for a travel
stipend, please mark "undergraduate" or "graduate," respectively, on
your cover page.

Please e-mail all submissions to Jen McWeeny at
jmcweeny@jcu.edu no later than FEBRUARY 16, 2009. The decision of the
program committee is expected by March 1, 2009. While all
presentations will take place on Saturday, March 28th, there will be a
welcoming reception on the evening of Friday, March 27th and an
optional farewell dinner on Saturday evening.

REGISTRATION FEE: $25 (Registration Fee is waived for students and for
the underemployed).
