The 13th annual meeting of philoSOPHIA will run from the evening of Thursday, May 9, to the evening of Saturday, May 11, 2019, at Memorial University in beautiful St. John’s, Newfoundland. Keynote speakers will include María Lugones and Uma Narayan.
philoSOPHIA began with a focus on collective discussion of work in progress, so as to help foster a mutually supportive and collaborative community of feminist scholars in continental philosophy. To that end, this year’s program will aim to accommodate some intimate, closed workshops focused on developing productive interaction among participants, as well as regular, stand-alone panel presentations and four to five plenary sessions. Workshop participants will meet together and present their papers to each other either in the mornings or the afternoons of Friday and Saturday, and will be free to attend plenary sessions as well as panel sessions outside of that dedicated time. In your submission, you must specify what format you prefer (workshop or panel), and we will aim to accommodate that preference. Reviewers will not privilege one or the other format.
Contributions in the area of decolonial feminisms are especially welcome.
Guidelines for Submission:
1. Submit one of the following:
a) Individual abstracts of 500-700 words
b) Complete papers (3000 words) with an accompanying abstract (100-150 words)

3. Submit only one work for consideration.
4. Identify in your email whether you wish to be considered for a workshop or a panel. Workshops and panels will both be assembled by the program committee on the basis of overlapping interests.
5. Include in your submission only one document. Panel submissions should also be grouped into one file.
6. Identify the word-count of the abstract and (if relevant) paper.
7. If you are a graduate student, identify yourself as such in your submission email in order to be eligible for the graduate student travel prize. Up to two such prizes will be awarded for the best graduate student papers.
8. If you are a graduate student or on contract, underemployed, etc. and would benefit from travel aid, please identify yourself as such in your submission email. If a grant application that is in process is successful, travel costs may be subsidized.

philoSOPHIA is honored to participate in the second Diverse Lineages of Existentialism conference, which will take place June 3-5, 2019 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The society will host two panels of three papers each. We are particularly interested in papers that, while engaging continental philosophical and feminist themes, highlight the society's commitment to diversity along the axes of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, class, and citizenship.
Guidelines for Submission:
Please send submissions in the form of complete papers formatted for blind review to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: October 15, 2018
Note that philoSOPHIA is also hosting its annual conference in May 2018; submission or presentation of a philoSOPHIA panel at DLE II does not exclude applicants from simultaneously submitting their paper to the philoSOPHIA annual conference.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Executive Committee.
With several thousand unique views per year, philosophiafeministsociety.com has to potential to provide a good amount of exposure for feminist artists and their works. To that end, philoSOPHIA invites the submission of original artwork, imagery, and/or photography for use on its website, CFP announcements, promotional flyers, and conference materials (programs, posters, etc.). We particularly encourage the submission of works that visually speak to the overall themes and figures endemic to feminist thought and the mission of the society.
