CFP: 22nd Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore

Deadline: October 22, 2021

The 22nd biennial conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore will be hosted by The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH from Thursday April 7 – Sunday April 10, 2022.

Due to uncertainties about COVID-related safety and possible difficulties or uneasiness participants may have about travel, both domestic and international, to Columbus, we have decided to hold the conference virtually, entirely on-line via Zoom.  It is not ideal, we realize, but a virtual conference has the advantage of guaranteeing that we can indeed hold a robust and intellectually stimulating gathering, and doing it this way will maximize participation.  We will also explore various avenues for socializing via virtual modalities.

CFP: Women Philosophers and Russia (Dickinson College)

Deadline: January 15, 2022

We invite submissions for the following international on-line conference, to be held August 29-31, 2022:

Women Philosophers and Russia

The barriers that women have faced in philosophy are no secret to specialists in the field. As Immanuel Kant said, “A woman who has a head full of Greek, like Mme Dacier, or carries on fundamental controversies about mechanics, like the Marquise de Chatelet, might as well have a beard” (Observations II, 230). In recent decades, scholars have begun to publish with increasing frequency on the philosophical work of Émilie du Châtelet, Christine de Pizan, Elisabeth of the Palatinate, and others—this, in spite of the almost complete absence of serious consideration of these thinkers in certain philosophical contexts. Up until the 20th century, in fact, it was nearly impossible for women to integrate themselves into philosophical life in any widespread sense. An example in this regard is Harriet Taylor Mill, who was unable to publish her own work independently, but who collaborated closely with her husband, a relationship that remains up for debate to this day. In John Stuart Mill’s own words on this kind of collaboration: “When two persons … arrive at their conclusions by processes pursued jointly, it is of little consequence … which of them holds the pen; the one who contributes least to the composition may contribute most to the thought; the writings which result are the joint product of both, and it must often be impossible to disentangle their respective parts, and affirm that this belongs to one and that to the other” (J. S. Mill, Autobiography, 251).
