Feminist Theorizing. Philosophy, Epistemology, Politics
31 Dicembre 2017
Lyon, France, April 25th to 27th 2018.
The main objective of this conference is to explore the specificities of a somewhat “tainted” feminist act of theorization, always in touch with the outside world, as well as with its manifestations within epistemological models from various disciplines. We will more particularly address philosophy and political science. Contributions could deal either with the elaboration of concepts for empirical research taking gender into account or with the adoption and revision of a theoretical model or of an inherited methodology in a feminist perspective. Contributions could also reflect upon the specificities of the feminist relationship to theory, in the fields of philosophy or political science. The international conference is multidisciplinary ; all proposals are welcome as long as they don’t deal only and directly with the fieldwork and its empirical results, but also with a work of theorization or ontheorization.
If “doing fieldwork as a feminist” raises a series of questions, theorizing also raises its own questions. Those questions may be elaborated along these four lines :
- Political science
- Theory and practice
Titles and abstracts of proposals for contribution (in French or in English) can be sent in an anonymized document (format .doc or .odt), attached to an email where the address and phone number will be specified, as well as a short biography of the author.
The anonymized document should include: 1) an abstract of 3000 words maximum; 2) 3 to 5 key-words; 3) the indication of the specific line along which the author chose to elaborate. Finally, the document must have the following name: theoriserenfeministe.doc (ou theoriserenfeministe.odt).
Proposals must be sent to theoriefeministe[at]gmail.com by December 31th 2017 at the latest.
Answers to authors will be sent by February 15th 2018 at the latest.
