Symposium: Feminist Theory and the Philosophical Tradition (2 Dec, Helsinki)

Feminist Theory and the Philosophical Tradition, 2nd December 2011, Helsinki.

This symposium will explore the connections and the tensions between contemporary feminist theory and the tradition of philosophy. Contemporary feminist thinkers have appropriated the tradition of philosophy in imaginative ways, but these allegiances also divide feminist thinkers: they sometimes appropriate very different or even opposing philosophical ideas about the subject, gender and power, for example.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Stella Sandford.

This symposium is free and open to all. If you would like to attend the conference dinner (at your own expense), please send an email to Tuija Modinos ( by November 15, 2011.

Organizer: Research team Politics of Philosophy and Gender (PPhiG), Centre of Excellence Political Thought and Conceptual Change, University of Helsinki.

Further information: Coordinator Tuija Modinos.
