Turkish-European Network for the study of women in the history of philosophy

It is with great pleasure that I would like to inform you of the creation of a Turkish-European Network for the study of women in the history of philosophy.

The purpose of this informal network is to encourage greater exchange between scholars working in Turkey and other European countries on women philosophers at any period in history, and to enable them to join in with the great debates currently taking place in the rest of the world. We will build on existing connections between Yeditepe in Istanbul and Paderborn in Germany and exchange news and ideas about workshops, conferences, resources, publication projects and grant proposals.

We hope that this will encourage researchers to pursue their interests in women philosophers, and perhaps enable the recovery of Turkish and other European women philosophers who have not yet come into the limelight.

So far the following individuals and institutions have volunteered to be part of the network:

In Turkey:

Alberto L. Siani, Yeditepe, Istanbul

Gül Gültekin, Yeditepe, Istanbul

Hatice Karaman, Yeditepe, Istanbul

Hatice Nur Erkizan, Muğla

Özlem Duva, Dokuz Eylül University İzmir

Sandrine Berges, Bilkent University, Ankara

In Europe:

Alan Coffee, London

Ana Rodrigues, Paderborn

Emily Thomas, Groningen

Eric Schliesser, Amsterdam

Susan James, Birkbeck

Julia Lerius, Paderborn

Lena Halldenius, Lund

Martina Reuter, Jyväskylä

Ruth Hagengruber, Paderborn

 

In the rest of the world:

Mary Ellen Waithe, Cleveland State University

Founder of the Society Study Women Philosophers

We intend to communicate via a dedicated closed social media group, but in the meantime, please contact me (sandrineberges@gmail.com) or Alberto (alberto.siani@gmail.com) for more details or if you’d like to be part of the network.

Watch this space for more news.
