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 celebrated women’s diverse historical and contemporary contributions to philosophy, and highlighted the work of female philosophers in all branches of philosophical and feminist inquiry.

The conference themes of history, values, and knowledge reflected 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 were Karen Green (Melbourne) and Jacqueline Broad (Monash).

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Faculty of Arts, Monash University; the Australian Research Council; the Ian Potter Foundation; and the International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh).
