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.

Volume 29, Issue 3
Summer 2014
Edited by Nancy Tuana and Chris J. Cuomo

The essays brought together in this special issue acknowledge and incorporate the fact of climate change’s disproportionately negative impacts on women and others who are geographically or economically disadvantaged, but they also look beyond and behind that data, asking key questions about values, environmental politics, scientific practice, ontology, collective responsibility, and culture.

And don't miss a special Hypatia Symposium on Climate Change!
