Philosophy Graduate Student Conference
Feminism, Identity, and the Disparity of Power - Keynote: Hilde Lindermann
Historically, women have experienced powerlessness and oppression in the public domain. Throughout this history, there have been narratives about gender that have affected the identity of women, limiting them to a minimal range of expression.
Only recently have the power dynamics shifted to include women’s experience in public discourse. Along with that inclusion, we have begun to evaluate narratives about gender and change them.
The goal of this conference is to understand, criticize, and evaluate the way that narratives about gender identity and gender relations affect our social and political institutions, moral theories, and ethical responsibilities.
