Women in Philosophy: A Mentoring and Networking Workshop

Venue: University of York, 22-23 June 2015

Aims of the Workshop
This workshop will be the first of its kind in the UK, roughly following the example set by Princeton University’s Networking and Mentoring Workshop for Graduate Women in Philosophy held in August earlier this year. The aim of the workshop is to bring together graduate and early career women in philosophy from a selection of philosophical areas in order to offer support and encouragement to develop a thriving community of women in philosophy. The workshop will provide graduate and early career women with feedback on their work and advice on a career in philosophy. Alongside the philosophical talks, there will be presentations discussing a wide range of issues facing women in philosophy. We hope that a consequence of the workshop will be an enhanced support network, which will encourage more women into the discipline.

The Call for Submissions has now closed
Selected speakers will present their paper, and also have a mentoring and advice session on their paper with an expert in their field.

Notification of acceptance will be sent out by mid-April. Accepted speakers will have their registration and accommodation for the duration of the workshop paid, as well as travel costs up to £100. The organisers are committed to making the workshop accessible to disabled philosophy. All rooms will be wheelchair accessible. Philosophers needing interpreters or assistive technology are asked to communicate such needs as soon as possible to the organisers. If you need childcare to attend the conference, we are happy to help you arrange this and we may be able to offset costs. 

This workshop is generously funded by SWIP UK, the British Society of Aesthetics, the Mind Association and Project PERFECT.
