Call for papers: ‘Feminist Views from Somewhere’

Feminism is not one thing or another; it is a way of being in a world of multiple perspectives.

Following the publication of ‘Feminist Views from Somewhere’ (Routledge 2016) we now propose a conference which will explore, in greater breadth and depth, the themes of our edited collection. The conference will be held in London at the Amnesty International building in Shoreditch on July 6, 2018.

We invite feminist scholars with an interest in depth psychology, psychoanalysis, and their off-shoots, to participate in a day of exploration, discussion and critical analysis. We are interested in furthering links between feminist epistemologies, jurisprudence, ecology literature and linguistics.

We welcome concise proposals relevant to this general outline, from researchers in the humanities, the social sciences and the sciences. Talks should be around 15 mins – 20 mins. Please email us at by the 29th September, 2017. We will confirm acceptance of successful proposals by 30th November, 2017. We intend to run the day as a series of panels, with early evening event afterwards. Concise presentations will allow us to have multiple inputs.

We look forward to hearing: Leslie Gardner (University of Essex) and Frances Gray (University of Queensland)
