Announcements & CFPs

Announcing a New Feminist Philosophy Journal

Feminist Philosophy Quarterly (FPQ) is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting feminist philosophical scholarship. We welcome submissions from all areas and traditions of feminist philosophy, and our goal is to be a platform for philosophical research that engages the problems of our time in the broader world.

As an open-access journal, our goal is to make feminist philosophical scholarship of the highest quality widely available, and so we are free to authors and to readers. We also aim to improve the presence and impact of women and feminist philosophers. We take considerations of implicit bias seriously, and employ the best practices of the profession, including triple-anonymous review.

We believe that all areas of feminist philosophical practice can contribute to social change, assisting those who strive for greater justice and equity and work against oppression in all forms. We endeavour to ally ourselves with others who are making such contributions.

The website goes live and will be ready to start accepting submissions in June 2014.  We expect our inaugural issue to be published in January 2015.  Our next announcement will include contact and submission information.
It’s free, as it always should be!

CFP: Journal of Value Inquiry

 A message from John Hacker-Wright, the new Editor in Chief of the Journal of Value Inquiry (Springer):

 I warmly welcome all analytic feminist moral and social/political philosophers to submit their work to the Journal. Feminist moral and political philosophy have not been a strengths of the Journal under previous editors, but I would very much like these areas to be strengths in the future. You can help bring that about by (a) submitting your work, and (b) agreeing to review articles if you are asked (essential to have reviewers who are informed about feminist philosophy, and, of course, not hostile to it). If you have any questions about what is suitable for the Journal, please do not hesitate to contact me through email at
