We invite submissions of abstrats to the Symposium on "Feminist
Epistemology in Philosophy of Science: Practical Contributions,
Theoretical Problems" for the 4th Lisbon International Conference on
Philosophy of science that will take place at the Univ. Lisbon next
July (12th - 15th).

“Feminist Epistemology in Philosophy of Science: Practical
Contributions, Theoretical Problems”

Coordinators: Silvia Di Marco (CFCUL), María de Paz (Univ. Sevilla)

In a review paper of 2010, Sarah S. Richardson lamented the
marginalization of feminist philosophy within mainstream philosophy of
science, largely due to a hostile academic environment that is eager
to trivialize feminist accounts of the non-neutrality of science as
“anti-science” and “relativist” (Gross and Levitt, 1994; Kitcher,
2022). In the same article, on a more positive note, she examined the
benefits and limitations of case-study-based research in feminist
epistemology that explores gender bias in science, and suggested that
“a project for the next generation of feminist philosophers of science
is to continue to explore, develop, and articulate philosophical
frameworks for modeling the interaction between gender ideologies and
science—in ways inclusive of, but not restricted to, the question of
bias.” (Richardson, 2010).

Drawing on Richardson’s suggestions and preoccupations, and keeping in
mind that feminist philosophical analysis of science is an eminently
interdisciplinary endeavor, for this symposium we invite scholars
working in the field of philosophy of science, history of science,
(social) epistemology, STS, anthropology, social sciences, visual
studies, and post/decolonial studies to present: (1) papers that
discuss how gendered norms, assumptions, languages, and metaphors
shape scientific theories, models, and practices; (2) papers that
discuss the current situation of feminist epistemology as a legitimate
theoretical position within mainstream philosophy of science, with
particular attention to the seminal debates on objectivity, scientific
realism/antirealism, and the scientific method.

Abstracts should include: Title; Author(s) and affiliation(s);
Abstract (maximum 200 words / 1500 characters with
spaces);Bibliographic references [optional]; and Biographical notes of
all the authors (maximum 150 words / 1100 characters with spaces
each).

Please, send your abstract to María de Paz (depaz.am at gmail.com) until
April 13th.
