Program CWIP ’15

We would like to extend our thanks to the UvA Faculty of Humanities
and the Society for Women in Philosophy in the Netherlands and Belgium,
SWIP.NL. It is with their financial support that this year’s conference has been
made possible.

This year’s program consists of four talks on various topics within philosophy.
We have asked respondents for each talk. Finally, we are happy and proud that
Sally Haslanger will be joining us for a conversation about the position of
minorities in philosophy.

We wish you a great day!
Allega Reinalda, Azille Coetzee, Jojanneke Vanderveen, Marie van Loon
