Virtual Issue: Hypatia Essays on Embodiment
Hypatia Virtual Issue: Embodiment
Edited by Linda Martín-Alcoff
Embodiment has been a central theme in feminist philosophy from its early days. The essays selected for this Virtual Issue illuminate how the topic of embodiment has been broached over the years by Hypatia authors, how it has developed, and what topics have received the most focus. Hypatia has been the site of some of the most innovative feminist theorizing on this subject; this Virtual Issue provides a taste of the range of work on embodiment published by Hypatia since the mid-1980s.

Special Issue: Crossing Borders
Volume 28, Issue 2
Edited by Sally J. Scholz
Borders—of politics, identities, disciplines, and ideologies—are invoked to keep people out and to set membership criteria for those kept in. The contributors to this special issue of Hypatia on “Crossing Borders” present a diverse array of philosophical scholarship on the issues, theories, and strategies by which feminists define as well as transcend or transgress borders. They ask what can be learned by thinking about the meaning and import of crossing borders, living in them, or even destroying them. The categories we inhabit comfortably might not seem so comfortable when we realize what or who is left out—or why we are included. This disruptive move can generate powerful insights, and sometimes mobilize strikingly new alliances and solidarities.
