Call For Papers for ‘Athena in Action’

A Networking and Mentoring Workshop for Graduate Student Women in Philosophy

Application Deadline: January 10, 2020

     Ph.D. students are invited to submit papers (on any topic in philosophy) to participate in the workshop, held June 16-19, 2020 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Thirty-five PhD students in philosophy from outside the local region will be selected to participate in the workshop: seven submitted papers will be selected to be discussed at the workshop; fourteen students will be selected as commentators on the papers; and fourteen more students will be selected as chairs of sessions. An additional roughly fifteen students will be selected from the local region.

     Our goal is to create a workshop at which high-level philosophical conversation occurs and great advice is offered. Participants will benefit from making connections with other talented philosophy students, getting to know the faculty mentors, and hearing the mentors’ advice on thriving as a woman in philosophy. Please submit papers and applications by January 10, 2020.
