Feminist Epistemology and Philosophical Traditions

18th-19th November 2011

Venue: Kingston University, London

This conference is organised by SWIP UK and the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University, London

Event Rationale

The aim of this conference is to reflect critically on the relation of feminist epistemology to the various philosophical traditions that generated it and those that have nourished it intellectually and challenged it in the past three decades. These traditions include that of epistemology itself (of course), but also more generally the analytical philosophical traditions, the continental philosophical traditions, feminist philosophical traditions, and other philosophically inflected theoretical traditions, for example psychoanalytical theory.

Questions to be addressed include:
