Calls for papers
Fillosophie - Call for videos
For the new school year, Fillosophie innovates with a call for videos to women* students in philosophy from all over the world! Fillosophie is a group of women researchers in philosophy from Université du Québec à Montréal, who wish to promote the active presence of women - trans inclusive - and the influence of their research in philosophy.
“Research shortcut” invites women students and people who do not identify as "cis man" in philosophy to present their research project in a 60-second video, by September 20, 2020. Whether you are at the end of your project or just starting your reflections, we want to know about your journey and find it reassuring (realistic!) to share the first attempts, ideas or reflection of one’s future or current research project!
In addition to bringing together the different research projects, these short videos are intended as a dissemination exercise: record a shortcut so that the philosophical community can hear you.
It can be in the language of your choice. We hope that this space will encourage the spread of women* students’ work within the philosophical community.

The first step is to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us the name, and a short description of the bias.
