Women and Philosophy in Australia

The 2016 Symposium of the International Association of Women Philosophers will also mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of the pioneering special supplement of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy, vol. 64 (1986), ‘Women and Philosophy’, edited by Janna Thompson.

To honour this event, we will be holding a special joint IAPh/AAP session at our conference–a roundtable discussion featuring Janna Thompson, Lorraine Code, Moira Gatens, Denise Russell, and Karen Green–from 3pm on Thursday, 7 July, in Building H.
