New Narratives in the History of Philosophy: Women and Early Modern European Philosophy

A conference on the works of early modern women philosophers (1500 to 1850) in preparation for an edited volume of essays. (9 months)

The project will bring together, for a three-day conference, 49 scholars working on the philosophical output of early modern women philosophers, and it will result in a volume of cutting-edge, scholarly papers on this topic. Because of the wide range of genres and methods that women employed in their philosophical writing during these centuries, our project necessarily and meaningfully connects broadly across many humanities disciplines. We thus include humanities scholars beyond philosophers as participants in the conference and as contributors to the volume, a distinctive virtue of this project.
