Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy (CSWIP) Conference
Date and Time
The University of Guelph is hosting the 2019 meeting of the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy
Our conference theme this year is Feminism and Food. This conference asks participants to consider how food, as a topic worthy of philosophical investigation, is related to feminist challenges to traditional discourse. How has food been discussed in the history of philosophy, or overlooked? How has feminist philosophical scholarship taken into account issues including the ethics and politics of food production, availability, and consumption? What counts as food, and how are metaphysical claims regarding the nature of food related to our attitudes to animals, to climate, and to cultural geographies?
