Useful information


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.

The conference themes of history, values, and knowledge reflect the broad scope of contemporary research on historical women philosophers, on feminist ethics, aesthetics, and politics, and on questions of feminist epistemology.

The main conference organisers are Karen Green (Melbourne) and Jacqueline Broad (Monash).
