Lehigh University 5th Annual Philosophy Conference

Women in Early Modern Philosophy

 Thursday, October 19, 2017 – Friday, October 20, 2017


The Lehigh University Philosophy Department welcomes abstracts concerning any aspect of the philosophical work of -- or about -- women during the Early Modern Period. We are looking forward to proposals related to any field of philosophy -- from metaphysics and epistemology to ethics, aesthetics, political theory, and philosophy of religion. We are interested both in proposals that are primarily historical and in those that emphasize the contemporary relevance of texts from this period.
