Co-sponsored by University of Massachusetts Lowell and Boston University
The Society for Analytical Feminism invites submissions of long abstracts or panel proposals for a conference on the theme of Analytical Feminism: Past, Present, & Future.

We seek presentations that examine feminist topics by methods broadly construed as analytic, or that discuss the use of analytic philosophical methods as these are applied to feminist issues.  We welcome work that explores the relationships between feminist philosophy and intersectional questions of race, class, sexuality, and ability (among others).  

Authors of individual papers should submit an extended abstract (750-1000 words) accompanied by a bibliography, prepared for doubly anonymous review.  Panel proposals should be submitted by one author on behalf of all panelists and should include a paragraph proposing the panel that is accompanied by all of the extended abstracts; the panel proposal and all abstracts should be prepared for doubly anonymous review.  Reading time should be approximately 20 minutes for individual papers and 80 minutes for panels.

Please send questions and submit proposals to by JUNE 15th 2016.  Include your name and preferred email address in the body of your email.  If you are proposing a panel, please include the names and preferred email addresses of all potential participants in the body of the email.  Please submit all relevant information in a single document (no separate bibliographies, please).

Election Results 

The results of the 2015 SAF election are as follows.  Kate Norlock (Trent University) received the most votes for the President position, and Alice MacLachlan (York University) received the most votes for the Executive Committee member position.  The proposed amendment to increase the length of Executive Committee terms from 2 to 3 years passed unanimously.  

We'd like to extend our thanks to all the candidates who generously agreed to stand for nomination, and to congratulate Kate and Alice.  We'd also like to thank outgoing President Robin Dillon (Lehigh University) and outgoing Executive Committee member Ami Harbin (Oakland University) for their service.
