CFP: Canadian SWIP 2008

The deadline for submissions to the next C-SWIP is coming up! Well, it would have been today, but it's been extended by almost a week, March 18.

Cate Hundleby had scheduled Val Plumwood as the keynote speaker, but due to Plumwood's recent death, has found another exciting speaker: Marilyn Frye, from Michigan State. Dr. Fry will be giving a talk titled "Kinds of People: 'Don't label me, I'm just a person!'"

The theme for the conference is "Reason, Activism, and Change" and it will be held at the University of Windsor, October 3-5, 2008.

C-SWIP is always a very fun and intellectually stimulating conference! You need not be Canadian to attend, though it helps if you like Canadians.
