Feminist Philosophy: Time, History and the Transformation of Thought

Feminist philosophy: Time, history and the transformation of thought is an international platform for inquiries in feminist philosophy. The network aims to create a space for critical feminist practices of reading. We want to develop and draw connections between philosophy and feminist theory, informed by historical perspectives. How can feminism revitalize philosophy and interpretations of its history? What would a philosophical feminism look like? What does it mean to read feminist theory historically?

From 2017 to 2019, we will organize six conferences on different themes in feminist philosophy. The first conference Feminist Utopias was held in collaboration with the University of Iceland in March 2017, attracting about 60 scholars from all over the world.


The coordinators of Feminist Philosophy are Synne Myreböe, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies, Umeå University, Sweden, Valgerður Pálmadóttir, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies at Umeå University, Sweden, and Johanna Sjöstedt, Department of literature, history of ideas and religious studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Contact the coordinators at feministphilosophy@nsuweb.org  and join our Facebook group Feminist philosophy (NSU).
