Ways of Knowing: Feminist Philosophy of Science and Epistemology
Call for Abstracts

 

The 4th annual conference of SWIP- Ireland is on the theme of Feminist Philosophy of Science and Epistemology. The conference will investigate the ways in which issues relevant to gender influence conceptions of scientific knowledge, its methodology and justification.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The social situatedness of knowledge
  • Gendered ways of knowing
  • Gender, power and knowledge
  • Feminist perspectives on science
  • The social and cultural dimensions of science
  • Gender and the ideals of objectivity and value-neutrality
  • Diversity in Science
  • Science and the question of implicit bias
  • Expert testimony and epistemic injustice in a scientific context
  • Feminist standpoint theory
  • The role of social and biological location in shaping knowledge
  • The role of ethical and political values in science
  • The epistemology of ignorance
  • Gendered peer disagreement

The focus of the conference is primarily philosophical, however, contributions from scientists interested in gender issues are strongly encouraged and are very welcome.
