      CALL FOR PAPERS
      ---------------
      GENDERING ETHICS/ THE ETHICS OF GENDER
      AN INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
      23 - 25 JUNE 2000
      CENTRE FOR INTERDISCIPLINARY GENDER STUDIES, UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS
      Recent years have seen a growing interest in issues of ethics within
      feminist scholarship. As faith in the grand narratives and political
      projects of modernity has faltered, there has been a turn towards situated,
      contingent ethical frameworks. Both the philosophical basis and the
      political contours of these emerging frameworks are the subject of intense
      debate among feminists. Developments in science and technology raise new
      ethical dilemmas, and the demands of subaltern groups disturb old moral
      certainties. Across a wide range of disciplines questions of ethics are
      taking centre stage. This conference will be the first major international,
      interdisciplinary feminist conference in the United Kingdom to address these
      issues.
      Keynote Speakers include:
