Sponsored by the Early Modern Women Interest Group, National Women's Studies Association
28th Annual Conference, June 28 - July 1, 2007
Pheasant Run, St. Charles, Illinois

Submissions are invited on feminist philosophers and theorists of the Early Modern Period. Papers might address issues of identity and identification (race, gender, sexuality, sex, class, nation, immigration, religion, ability), traditional philosophical areas (metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, moral and political theory), or other topics, such as colonialism, language, culture, religion, geography, science, medicine, law, and education.

Submissions should include a 50-word abstract, a one-page description, and a CV. Completed papers should be approximately eight pages, for a reading time of 15 minutes. Short papers will leave time for panel participants and audience members to engage in discussion. Abstracts of accepted papers will appear in the NWSA program guide.

The deadline for submissions to the Early Modern Interest Group Organizing Committee is October 7, 2006.

Applicants will be notified of the committee's decision by November 1, 2006. Papers that are not accepted by the interest group may be re-submitted directly to the NWSA. For more information on submission guidelines for the general conference, please see the NWSA website.

Please submit abstracts, description, and CV to Alice Sowaal (information below). E-mail submissions are preferred.
