ESWIP Spring Meeting

Eastern Society for Women in Philosophy

ANNOUNCING ESWIP’S FIRST
VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
12-18 April 2010

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: FEBRUARY 12, 2010

The Eastern Division of the Society for Women in Philosophy (ESWIP) kindly invites submissions for its 2010 Spring conference. Abstracts (500 words), papers (2500 words), panel proposals, and roundtable discussion proposals will be considered. We welcome submissions in non-traditional formats. Proposals for panels should include the names of all participants and each of their papers or abstracts.

In order to promote greater accessibility – to those with limited travel funds, to those with disabilities, and to those not within easy travel distance to the Eastern United States - ESWIP is excited to convene its first virtual conference. Panels will post each day from Monday, 12 April to Friday, 16 April; comments will remain open until midnight on Sunday 18 April, at which point they will be closed. All participants will log in to a secure site, so work and commenting is available only to registered participants.

We welcome submissions in all areas of feminist philosophy. In addition, submissions that address the general topics of feminist theory/practice or women’s studies 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 in the body of your email (which will serve as a cover page). Please e-mail all submissions to Robin James at rjames7@uncc.edu no later than midnight on FEBRUARY 12, 2009. Please put “ESWIP Submission” in the subject line, and attach all submissions as MS Word documents or PDFs. Please be sure the document’s file name is identical to your submission title (e.g., R. James’s submission “On Feminist Philosophy” would be “onfeministphilosophy.doc”), and to remove all metadata from your file (In Word, go to the Word menu and click Preferences. Under Personal Settings, click Security. Under Privacy Options, check the “Remove Personal Information From This File On Save” box. Save the document.) The decision of the program committee is expected by 5 March 2010.
