Chamada: Iris Young Conference (Paris 2017)

Entre os dias 31 de maio e 2 de junho de 2017, o Centro de Filosofia Contemporânea da Paris 1 (Sorbonne) sediará uma conferência internacional sobre a obra de Iris Marion Young, falecida a exatos dez anos atrás. Young trouxe contribuições seminais para a filosofia política feminista e para a política de identidades, e se tornou famosa por ter desenvolvido, no final dos anos 80, uma crítica até hoje relevante às concepções excessivamente "distributivistas" na teoria política contemporânea, que, segundo Young, acabariam insensíveis a outras formas de opressão. Entre as convidadas confirmadas estão Seyla Benhabib (Yale) e Nacy Fraser (New School). O prazo para o envio de trabalhos termina no dia 30 de setembro.
Conference on Iris Marion Young

Call for Papers
International Conference on Iris M. Young
University of Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne
May 31st, June 1st and 2nd 2017
An international and interdisciplinary conference on the work of Iris Marion Young will be held on May 31st, June 1st and 2nd 2017 in the University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, by the Sorbonne Centre of Contemporary Philosophy in the Sorbonne Institute of Legal and Philosophical Sciences.
Our aim is to draw attention on Young’s work in the French academic context where it is still unfamiliar and overneglected, a situation which starkly contrasts with the success it received elsewhere. Indeed, while Young’s books have been translated in many countries, none has been translated into French yet. The 10th anniversary of her death in 2016 gives us the opportunity to fill in this gap. The purpose of the conference is not only to pay tribute to Iris Marion Young but also to show how current research in moral, social and political philosophy has been deeply transformed and inspired by many of her insights.
Young’s work is characterized by its scope and internal variety. In her books and articles, she addressed epistemological, theoretical, political and moral questions; she drew on social sciences, on her experience as a woman and as a feminist, as well as on her knowledge of the European philosophical tradition. To introduce the diversity of her work to a French audience, we invite paper proposals along the four following lines:
1. The nature and methods of social critique.
2. Rethinking subjectivity: lived experience, the body and social structures.

3. The politics of difference: practices and justifications.

4. Responsibility: models and implications for justice.

We welcome proposals from all human and social sciences. Abstracts (500-800 words) can be submitted either in English or in French at irismarionyoung2017@univ-paris1.fr. 
The deadline for submission is September 30th 2016
Notification for acceptance will be sent by November 15th 2016.
Invited speakers: Seyla Benhabib (Yale University), Ryoa Chung (Université de Montréal), Estelle Ferrarese (Université de Strasbourg), Nancy Fraser (New School for Social Research), Claude Gautier (ENS Lyon), Alison Jaggar (University of Colorado), Sandra Laugier (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), Lois MacNay (Oxford University), Emmanuel Renaut (Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense), Patrick Savidan (Université Paris Est Créteil), Olivier Voirol (Université de Lausanne).
