Final Call for Papers: 'Rape and its Meaning/s'
Final Call for Papers: 'Rape and its Meaning/s' Special edition of *Philosophical Papers* Guest editor: Louise du Toit (University of Johannesburg) Expected contributors include: Susan Brison, Ann Cahill, and Seriol Morgan. The topic of rape has not received the kind of deep and sustained attention from philosophers that it warrants. However, during the past three decades the trickle of papers, book collections, and monographs has steadily increased. Notable among these works are those written by women who were victims of rape, including Susan Brison's "Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of a Self" (2002), which explores rape from the perspective of someone who is both a victim and a professional philosopher. These latter contributions-as well as others-are important in that they focus on the meaning or meanings of rape. The aim of this special issue of Philosophical Papers is to consider the possible meanings of rape, and to better illuminate the damage of rape in the light of such meanings. Discussions can approach the topic from any of a range of angles, including the personal, political, legal, socio-symbolic, literary, or religious. We are interested in any approach that clarifies the significance of the phenomenon of rape. Possible questions for discussion include: --Should we seek for rape's meaning in the intentions of the rapist or in the experiences of the victim, or in both? --What types of damage does rape cause? --To what extent does rape have political significance? --Does rape have different meanings in different contexts or socio-political dispensations? Does rape in war have different meanings from rape in peace time? --To what extent does the law determine rape's social meaning? --What role does culture and religion play in the meaning of rape? --Does the meaning of rape change when the victim is a child? When the victim is male? --What is the relationship between the meaning of rape and the meaning of sex? --How does the absence of consent in rape relate to its meaning? The deadline for receipt of submissions is 30 June 2009. This issue of Philosophical Papers, comprising both invited and submitted articles, will appear in November 2009. Authors should submit manuscripts electronically, as a pdf- or word-document attachment, to . Authors must include their full name, affiliation, and address for e-mail correspondence with their submission. Further enquiries may be addressed to Louise du Toit ( ) or Ward Jones, Editor, *Philosophical Papers* ( ).

15th International Philosophy Colloquium Evian Conditions of Freedom
Call for papers15th International Philosophy Colloquium EvianConditions of FreedomEvian (Lake Geneva), FranceJuly 12-18, 2009Contact:Prof. Dr. Georg W. BertramFreie Universitaet Berlin, Institut für Philosophie, Habelschwerdter Allee30, D-14195 Berlin, GermanyCall for Papers:We invite proposals for presentations (maximum length: one page), along witha short CV (maximum length: two pages), by April 1st, 2009. Please sendthese documents via e-mail to the following address:evian@philosophie.fu-berlin.deA detailed exposition of the topic and all relevant information concerningthe character and history of the colloquium as well as matters ofaccomodation and costs can be found on our website: idea of freedom stands at the center of practical philosophy, embeddedin a thick web of relations with concepts such as subjectivity, rationality,morality, and existence. It draws its force from the tension between tworoles: on the one hand as a fundamental metaphysical or anthropologicaldetermination of human beings; on the other as designating a political idealthat can more or less be realized or fail to be realized in concrete formsof life. Rousseau's opening flourish in The Social Contract, "Man is bornfree, yet everywhere he is in chains," underlines this tension. In thissense the idea of freedom stands not only practically but also conceptuallyunder complex conditions, which need to be understood in order to grasp whatwe really mean by "freedom."The Fifteenth International Philosophy Colloquium Evian invites philosophersto Lake Geneva to discuss issues concerning the conditions of freedom. Itaims especially to encourage its participants to transcend the narrowconfines of different traditions in philosophy. It is conceived particularlyas a place where the divide between continental and analytic philosophy isovercome, or at least where their differences can be renderedphilosophically productive. The passive mastery of French, German, andEnglish (the three languages of discussion of the colloquium) is anindispensable prerequisite for its participants.Organisation: Georg W. Bertram (Berlin), Robin Celikates (Bremen), DavidLauer (Berlin); in cooperation with: Karin de Boer (Groningen), KarenFeldman (Berkeley), Jo-Jo Koo (Pittsburgh), Christophe Laudou (Madrid),Jérôme Lèbre (Paris), Diane Perpich (Clemson), Hans Bernhard Schmid (Basel),Chris Doude van Troostvijk (Strasbourg/Amsterdam)

Michael Oakeshott Association Conference
Michael Oakeshott Association ConferenceNovember 12-14, 2009Baylor UniversityWaco, Texas2009 marks the fifth meeting of the Michael Oakeshott Association, a group founded in 2001to encourage the study of one of the 20th century’s most important political philosophers.Previous conferences have taken place at the London School of Economics, Colorado College,and the University of Jena in Germany.This year, Baylor University will host the conference, broadening its scope to include thethought of Leo Strauss and Eric Voegelin. Because Oakeshott, Strauss and Voegelinoverlapped so extensively in their interests and yet differed sharply on certain points ofmethod and teaching, comparisons among them often prove fruitful and enlightening. Thisis why readers of one thinker often become serious readers of the others. And yet we rarelyif ever have an occasion to come together as a group and to benefit directly from eachother’s insights.We thus especially invite papers on topics that all three thinkers address, such as thefunction and place of liberal education, the fruitful tensions between reason and revelation,the relationship of religion and politics, the meaning of political philosophy, the crisis ofmodernity, and the role that studying the ancients may play in better understanding ourmodern situation. This list is not exhaustive, but we strongly encourage potential presentersto engage such comparative topics.Abstracts, no more than 500 words, should be sent by April 30, 2009 Abstracts should also include: title of paper, full name(s),affiliation, current position, and an email address.The conference will take place at the Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University inWaco, Texas.
