philoSOPHIA: A Journal of Continental Feminism

Call for Submissions and Invitation to Subscribe

SUNY Press is pleased to announce a new biannual journal: philoSOPHIA—
a philosophical journal that intertwines the rich traditions and
conceptual resources of continental philosophy and feminist theory.
The journal is edited by Elaine Miller and Emily Zakin, both Associate
Professors of Philosophy at Miami University of Ohio.

The inaugural issue features essays that explore animal imagery in
Freud’s works, specifically with reference to the elision of the
figure of the sister and the daughter in Freud’s works; argue that
contemporary deconstructive accounts of corporeal vulnerability can be
illuminated by Beauvoir’s account of the ethical problems posed by the
experiential ambiguities of violence; bring Irigaray and Chodorow
together to compare and partially synthesize their visions of the
maternal and of mother-daughter relations; trace Kristeva’s engagement
with Plato; and argue that Beauvoir’s account of aging illuminates not
only becoming woman, but also an unbecoming of masculinity. Please see
below for the tables of contents for the entire volume year.

The editors invite submissions from scholars who work at the
intellectual and philosophical intersections of continental philosophy
and feminist theory in the hope of opening a wider dialogue around a
diverse array of questions concerning sexual difference, sexuate
identity, women writing and being written about in philosophy, and the
interrogation of canonical texts.

Please direct editorial questions to Dr. Miller (
and Dr. Zakin (
