THE SOCIETY FOR SOCIAL AND POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY: 

Historical, Continental, and Feminist Perspectives 

(SSPP) 

www.sspp.us <http://www.sspp.us/>  

 

CALL FOR PAPERS 1 

FOR THE SOCIETY=92S MEETINGS TO BE HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH 

SPEP (Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy) in 2007 

 

The SSPP invites papers for one conference panel. We are seeking papers that
address issues pertaining to: 

 

Paradoxes of Race 

Race, when not viewed in terms of simplistic binaries, is deeply
paradoxical. It is very often situated ambiguously with respect to a number
of entrenched divisions: between nature and history, self and other, mind
and body. And, more generally, it is often seen as both historical and
natural, as both discursively constructed and essentialized through the
body. In light of these ambiguities, what can philosophy offer to a critical
analysis of race? We are looking for papers that address these racial
ambiguities=97papers that advance conceptual and historical understandings of
race, rather than papers which simply expose the racist past of the history
of philosophy. 

 

Complete papers of 3000-5000 words (that can be summarized and presented in
20-30 minutes) should be submitted for consideration for the 2007 meeting
(deadline: March 1, 2007). The meeting will be scheduled for November 8,
2007, in Chicago (see www.spep.org <http://www.spep.org/>  for conference
information).

CALL FOR PAPERS 2

FOR THE SOCIETY=92S MEETING TO BE HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH 

The Eastern APA (American Philosophical Association) in 2007 

 

The SSPP invites papers for two conference panels. We are seeking papers
that address issues pertaining to: 

 

Feminist Political Theory 

Feminism has always been political. But the types of political interventions
that feminists have championed have varied widely in their strategies, their
aims, and their contexts. In light of this complex theoretical history, and
in acknowledgment of the increasingly global nature of feminist discourse,
there are good reasons to reassess the state of feminist political theory in
all its formations: radical and liberal, local and global, past and present.
We are looking for papers that address the various ways that feminism has
engaged the complexities of political discourse. 

 

Complete papers of 3000-5000 words (that can be summarized and presented in
20-30 minutes) should be submitted for consideration for the 2007 meeting
(deadline: March 1, 2007). The meeting will be scheduled for December 28-29,
2007 in Baltimore (consult http://www.apa.udel.edu/apa/index.html for APA
conference information). 

 

Authors should include their name(s) and contact information on the cover
page ONLY. 

Papers should be emailed as attachments in Word or RTF format to
