Conference: "Perspectives on Gender" at UC Irvine

Perspectives on Gender
October 24th and 25th
University of California Irvine

A multi-disciplinary conference presented by the University of California Irvine Hypatia Society.

The conference aims to present a forum through which multi-disciplinary research and thought can be presented, shared, and discussed. The conference will focus primarily on issues pertaining to assumptions about gender that underpin critical social, legal, and cultural norms. Attention to recent debates over the status of women in the field of Philosophy will be an additional element of the conference and will be the subject of a roundtable discussion session.

The conference will consist of eight contributed talks and four invited speaker presentations. Our invited speakers are accomplished scholars working on a range of topics related to gender including but not limited to women's rights, feminism, feminist epistemology, gender-based violence, privilege and pedagogy, and masculinity. The titles of our four invited speakers' presentations are listed below:
Azizah al-Hibri (Richmond) - "Gender and the Islamic World View"
Ann Cudd (University of Kansas) - "Domestic Violence as Relational Injustice"
Helen Longino (Stanford) - "Sex, Race, and Sciences of Human Behavior"
 Michael Messner (USC) - "Male Allies and the Politics of Feminist Accountability"
