Women & War: Feminist Approaches to War and Violence

Departments of Philosophy and Global Studies, Temple University

November 11 to 12, 2022 [in person and online]

Registration Deadline: None Specified as of 8/30.

The philosophical discourse around questions of war has tended to approach war from the perspective of states, political leaders, and soldiers. These perspectives are often treated as objective, universal, or neutral points of view. However, given the reality of gender inequality in the social, political, and legal spheres, these “objective” perspectives have tended to focus our attention on the experiences and concerns of men. What has been kept hidden from view are the unique ways in which war affects women. This conference seeks to challenge the dominant frameworks of war by bringing to the fore feminist and other alternative approaches (e.g., critical race, queer theoretic, decolonial) to questions of war. There is no conference fee, but registration is required. Register here.

15th Biennial Conference – Radical Philosophy Association

November 17-19, 2022, Jacksonville, Florida

Registeration Deadline: Pre-register by October 10. Final deadline November 10.

The past several years have been characterized by an onslaught of crises and catastrophes: a global pandemic, a continual lethal battle against racism, dramatic weather patterns and forest fires, and the culmination of an imperial tug-of-war between NATO and Russia. We have a lot to critique, from neglectful and exclusionary healthcare policies to inequitable and gendered care burdens to systemic racism to industrial perpetrators of climate change and the entanglement of all this with the profit motive of capitalism and colonial logic. But along with our critiques, we are inspired to build anew as we divest from systems and structures that enforce injustice. Click here to register.
