About SSPP

The aims of the Society:
i. To raise the interest and promote the scholarship in Social and Political Philosophy from historical, continental, and feminist perspectives through meetings, events, and publications.  “Historical” is understood as encompassing textual, interpretative, and discursive analyses not limited to Marxist, Hermeneutic, Genealogical, Post-Colonial, and other approaches. “Continental” is understood in the broadest possible terms as inclusive of the encounters between European, Latin American, Asian, and African systems of thought and philosophical practices. “Feminist” is intended here to include anything that privileges sex, gender, and queer identities in approaching social and political relations.

ii. To provide a forum for interested scholars from various disciplines, orientations, and training, to engage in issues in and around Social and Political Philosophy approached from historical, continental, and feminist perspectives.

iii. To provide support for scholars and researchers in the humanities and the social sciences interested in exploring Social and Political Philosophy from historical, continental, and feminist perspectives when and where possible and appropriate.

iv. To represent the interest of members of the Society and to further the aims of the Society within professional organizations, congresses, centers, or associations, national and international, in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences.
