Women and their body: Talk Series and Conference

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: contact@historyofwomenphilosophers.org
Deadline: 01.09.2023
Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Ort: Online, Hybrid - Paderborn & Online
Veranstaltende Institution: Paderborn University

Recent events have shown that it is urgent and fundamentally important to shed new light, through philosophical, linguistic, literary, scientific, medical and artistic perspectives, on the female body and the position of women in relation to their body. Too often it seems that women do not have the right to determine their own body, although men have never been deprived of this right. The question of power over the body is strongly linked to the distinction between men and women. It seems that men have more rights and power on their own body than women. But how is this possible? What is the status of the female body in culture and society? Why is the female body both, an object of desire and a battlefield for demonstrating male power? To what extent have medicine and technology interfered in recent years with the female body and with what consequences?

 

In the Talk Series from Winter 2022/23, there are at least 6 meetings/dates (completely on Zoom) to be covered, but depending on the number of people interested in this subject, an international, hybrid conference is also planned on March, 16th and 17th 2023. For both events, please send an abstract (300 words max.), and personal details, including a contact email, to contact@historyofwomenphilosophers.org, by the 1st of September 2022 (indicating if you are available for both events, or if you prefer one or the other). You can expect to hear back from Jil Muller by September 12th.
