Call for Respondents


Amsterdam, Friday July 6th 2018

For the fifth annual Conference by Women in Philosophy, we are looking for respondents willing to comment on the presentations. The conference will take place Friday July 6th at the VU Amsterdam. The programme of the conference, where all the talks are listed, can be found here.

The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for undergraduate and graduate women philosophers to present their work to their peers. In this way we hope to create an opportunity for young women philosophers to inspire and motivate one another and to forge potentially productive alliances. We are very lucky to have a great number of women philosophers present papers on a wide variety of topics. The conference features a plenary discussion with keynote speaker Francesca Minerva about the topic ‘women in philosophy’, as well as workshops on applying for grants and drafting a good CV. We are excited to announce that the workshops will be held as a pre-conference event on Thursday 5 July. 

One of the goals of the conference is to help each other develop as philosophers. For this reason, we find it valuable that all speakers get a prepared response to their work. Because of the variety of topics, we are looking for respondents with different backgrounds.

Anyone interested in providing commentary (or wanting to read one or some of the abstracts before deciding so) can send an email to Please mention on which paper you would like to comment, provide a short explanation why you are suitable to respond to this paper, and if you are interested in attending the whole conference. We will let you know as soon as possible whether you will be invited to comment.
