The Society for the Study of Women in Phenomenology (SSWPH) is a learned society focused on researching the work of women in phenomenology and phenomenological philosophy. We have three objectives. First, the SSWPH wishes to uncover and critically examine the work of women in phenomenology or phenomenological philosophy from the early phenomenological movement to the current day, including but not limited to such figures as Hedwig Conrad-Martius, Edith Stein, Gerda Walther, Simone de Beauvoir, María Zambrano, Hannah Arendt, Sylvia Wynter, Iris Marion Young, María Lugones, Angela Ales Bello, Roberta De Monticelli, Judith Butler, Linda Martín Alcoff, Mariana Ortega, and Jacqueline Martinez. Second, the SSWPH wishes to create a dialogue between those working in the phenomenological tradition and other schools of thought and research methods to address questions of philosophical import. Third, the SSWPH seeks to cultivate new phenomenological, philosophical work that draws inspiration from and/or extends the ideas of the thinkers of the Society’s focus. The SSWPH carry out their mandate through a series of conferences, workshops, debates, translation projects, and scholarly publications.
The Society is open to all scholars interested in the work of women in phenomenology or phenomenological philosophy.
The SSWPH invite abstracts of no more than 300 words for papers to be presented at the conference. Presenters will have between 20 and 30 minutes to present their papers. The SSWPH welcome papers on the work of women phenomenologists and phenomenologically informed philosophers. Also welcome are papers that use women’s phenomenology to address issues or questions in philosophy. Papers that focus on the history of phenomenology and/or dialogue with other disciplines or fields of philosophy are also encouraged.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is December 20, 2020. Please send abstracts to: Julia Mühl-Sawatzki ([email protected]) and Antonio Calcagno ([email protected]). Please direct any questions to Julia Mühl-Sawatzki and/or Antonio Calcagno.
