Women in Philosophy: Past, Present and Future

True it is, Spinning with the Fingers is more proper to our Sexe, then studying or writing Poetry, which is the Spinning with the braine: but I having no skill in the Art of the first (and if I had, I had no hopes of gaining so much as to make me a Garment to keep me from the cold) made me delight in the latter – Margaret Cavendish

Though academic philosophy is still a male-dominated discipline, and the canon of philosophy is largely male, the future of philosophy promises to be less so. After years of scholarly neglect, the contribution of a large number of women philosophers across the ages is now being recognised – from medieval mystics to Enlightenment philosophers of science to founding mothers of analytic philosophy and phenomenology. At the same time, broad consensus is afoot that certain disciplinary norms, once-entrenched, no longer serve our discipline and have contributed to the attrition of female talent from philosophy.

This SWIP-Ireland conference, in collaboration with In Parenthesis, showcases work on the broad topic of Women in Philosophy: Past, Present and Future, and includes the following keynote speakers:

Eileen Brennan (Dublin City University)
Nancy Cartwright (Durham University)
Siobhan Chapman (University of Liverpool)
Kristin Gjesdal (Temple University)
Sally Haslanger (MIT)
Sigridur Thorgeirsdottir (University of Iceland)
