Founded in 1976, the International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh)
is an organisation committed to promoting discussion, interaction, and
cooperation among women in philosophy worldwide.

In honour of the IAPh’s 40th anniversary, this symposium proposes to
celebrate women’s diverse historical and contemporary contributions to
philosophy, and to highlight the work of female philosophers in all
branches of philosophical and feminist inquiry.

We particularly invite papers that reflect on the history of women’s
engagement with philosophy and feminism in Europe, the Americas,
Australasia, Asia, Africa, and elsewhere, during the past forty years, and
back to the earliest periods.

scope of contemporary research on historical women philosophers, on
feminist ethics and politics, and on questions of feminist epistemology.
