The goal of the event is to create a forum for women in philosophy to meet and help each other. More specifically, we wish to foster exchanges between women philosophers studying or working in Turkey as well as women from Turkey who study or work in philosophy abroad and want to stay in touch with the developments here.

The conference will consist of panels in Turkish and English on any area of philosophy and with two panels dedicated to students (one undergraduate, one graduate) spread over two days.
