CFP – APA Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy

This issue of the APA Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy invites philosophers to think about the way that their experiences of negotiating the private sphere has influenced their scholarship, teaching, ability to mentor, service, etc. The recent issue of the Journal of Social Philosophy on miscarriage, reproductive loss, and fetal death began a conversation about some of these very personal and difficult issues. The spring 2016 issue of the APA Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy aims to continue and broaden these personal yet political conversations.

Papers on any aspect of the topic are welcome. Because of the nature of the newsletter and the fact that it is only available in electronic form now, articles of any length are acceptable.

Due November 1st (flexible).
