Call For Papers

Duquesne Women in Philosophy on :


To be held: April 7, 2018
Keynote Speaker: Jeanine Weekes Schroer
(University of Minnesota Duluth)

Duquesne Women in Philosophy (D-WiP) invites papers and abstracts on the theme of “risk.” Full papers of approximately 3,000 words suitable for a 20-minute presentation will be prioritized, although substantial abstracts (a minimum of 700 words) are also welcomed. Full-paper submissions should be accompanied by an abstract of 250 words or less. Due to the underrepresentation of women’s work in philosophy, we encourage the participation of women authors. However, all submissions will receive blind review. For blind review, authors should not include their names or affiliations in the text.

Possible areas include but are not limited to:

  • Experiences/phenomenology of risk
  • Epistemology and ontologies of risk
  • Critical race approaches to risk
  • Social change and risk
  • Living with risk
  • Capitalism and risk
  • Risk and disability studies
  • Risk and the body/self
  • Politics and risk
  • Risk in normative theory/applied ethics/bioethics
  • Feminist approaches to risk

Please send submissions as a single document prepared for blind review to dwipcontact@gmail.com by January 25, 2018. For more information, please contact dwipcontact@gmail.com
