Feminist Philosophy Workshop

9 October 2015

University of Hamburg

Invited Speaker: Anca Gheaus (Sheffield)
Title: “Feminism and Basic Income”

All are warmly invited to participate in our upcoming workshop on Feminist Philosophy. We intend this workshop to provide an opportunity to highlight contemporary feminist scholarship, and to bring early career researchers, established scholars, and students together to share their ideas.  Our speakers will explore a range of feminist perspectives on topics in metaphysics, epistemology, intersectionality, autonomy, implicit bias, and morality and rationality.

  • Erin Beeghly (Utah) – Does Morality Require Stupidity? The Case of Forbidden Base Rates
  • Jade Fletcher (Leeds) – Feminist Metaphysics and the Canberra Plan  
  • Marta Jorba (Girona -LOGOS) & Maria Rodó de Zárate (Estadual de Ponta Grossa) – What Constitutes What in Intersectionality? Beyond Mutually Constitutive Models: The Wholeness of Experience
  • Nadja El Kassar (Zürich) – An Examination of the Idea of Epistemic Advantages of the Epistemically Disadvantaged
