Feminist Philosophy RIG members at retreat, January 2016

From January 8-10, 2016, the CSWS’s Feminist Philosophy RIG organized a writing retreat to Waldport, Oregon. Participants workshopped papers-in-progress in a supportive community setting, which offered the time and space for small and focused workshops organized around specific topics and figures in feminist philosophy.

Concurrent workshops allowed for focused and specialized editing sessions, as all group members were required to read the papers in their break-out group in entirety in order to provide substantive and engaged feedback.

All participants workshopped papers intended for either publication or conference presentation, and time was allotted for individual writing and further editing and revisions based on the feedback received during the morning’s group sessions.
