“Philosophy and Bodies” Feminist Summer Reading School
17 giugno -8:00 - 22 giugno -17:00
June 17th-June 22nd, 2019
We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual Feminist Summer Reading School, hosted this year by Cornell University. The 2019 Summer School theme is “Philosophy and Bodies” and will be held June 17-22, 2019. Spanning from early understandings of mind-body relations to current ethical and political issues surrounding the body, the Summer Reading School will delve into topics such as disability, gender, weight/fatness, sex, confinement/imprisonment, race, and so on.
The Summer School is uniquely structured insofar as all the reading is done at the Summer School and not beforehand. Students disperse to read either in small groups or individually and then reconvene for a discussion session. The Summer School strives to create a collaborative and diverse environment that facilitates meaningful learning among students with varying philosophical strengths and life experiences. In addition, invited scholars will offer workshops and lectures on a topic related to feminism and the body.
We strongly encourage women and other gender-minorities to apply. The Summer School is open to advanced undergraduate students, Master’s students, and PhD students. Applications opened January 1st, 2019 and close on February 20th, 2019.
