Uppsala university organizes the conference Women in Philosophy: Philosophy in Action (May 22-23, 2017). The key-note speakers are A. W. Eaton (University of Illinois at Chicago), Jennifer Lackey (Northwestern University), Helen Frowe (Stockholm University, Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace), and Kristin Sampson (University of Bergen). For information and CFP see 



In preparation for the conference the Uppsala department also organizes student workshops. The student workshops are an informal student initiative supported by the Department of Philosophy at Uppsala which aim to gather female students in order to share their ideas, discuss philosophy and help each other to develop their projects. The goal is to give an insight into the way academic work is done and to create an environment in which students feel safe to present their philosophical work. The hope is to provide a platform in which students can think together, without any pressure to have fully formulated ideas.  Students from Stockholm are welcome to participate.
