CFP: “Feminist Ethics and the Question of Gender”

15 Novembre 2018


Special Issue: “Feminist Ethics and the Question of Gender”

Why should feminist ethics and gender be a central focus in the work of
philosophical and theological ethics? While this question has been discussed
within the fields of feminist and gender theory, philosophers and
theologians have often overlooked the category of gender in their work.

Is feminist ethics a distinct ethical theory, or rather a category of
inquiry in any approach to ethics? How does the feminist perspective enrich
our ability to address such subjects as power, social, cultural, and
political participation, poverty, racism, misogyny, homo/transphobia,
economic inequality, and healthcare? And how does this lens sharpen the
reinterpretation of normative understandings of moral, ethical, and
religious traditions? To what degree is the rise of nationalism connected
with normative imageries of masculinity and femininity, which now require
ethical interrogation, especially against the backdrop of social

We want to strike a balance between theoretical inquiries and historical or
contemporary case studies. We welcome contributions from philosophical,
theological, and applied ethics, as well as from political and social
theory, history, psychology, and the sciences. The topic of feminist ethics
and the question of gender can be approached in many ways. For example:

– Feminist ethics, gender, and the traditions of ethics

– Gender roles, gender identity, and gender justice

– Concepts of autonomy and care

– Concepts of masculinity, femininity, and gender fluidity

– Gendered representations of the Divine

– Embodiment and gender

– Nature and freedom in relation to gender

– The pandemic of sexual violence

– Responses to sexual violence, such as #MeToo

– Poverty, racism, structural injustice

– Faces of misogyny and homo/transphobia

– Sexual difference and “gender ideology”

– Political, economic and healthcare inequalities

– Aging and ageism

– Nationalism and populism in relation to gender
