This cooperative symposium explores human rights and emphasizes feminist and gender-philosophical perspectives. It welcomes submissions from all disciplines, sub-disciplines and tendencies inside philosophy as well as interdisciplinary papers and projects.
The topics of the symposium will range from fundamental aspects of human rights to more specific issues – such as (including, but not limited to): fundamental philosophical aspects of human rights; a critical philosophical inquiry into the concept of human rights; the role of human rights in recent political issues (e.g. the pressure situation of asylum seekers); human rights in regard to economic questions (e.g. women and poverty in a neoliberal world-order and women in exploitative situations all over the world); Critical Whiteness; LGBTIQ and human rights; human rights and the precarious situation of children all over the world; human rights and religion as a feminist issue; freedom and security; human rights and the issue of environmental protection; a gender-theoretical and feminist approach to the antifeminist, antisemitic and chauvinistic tendencies inside far-right political parties worldwide; human rights and transhumanism (e.g. the possibility of attributing human rights to cyborgs), and so forth.
We also welcome papers and projects for a free section.
