Winter School | 5 - 9 February 2024

The winter school on Feminism and Motherhood reflects on the complicated but philosophically rich relation between feminism and motherhood. While famous second-wave feminists like Simone de Beauvoir publicly opposed motherhood, and many contemporary feminists still find it difficult to reconcile motherhood with their feminist convictions, other strands of feminism like black feminism have always pointed out the feminist potential of the experience of mothering. Rather than spelling out the complicated relation between feminism and motherhood directly, we will explore it through the topic of polymaternalism.

The winter school is organised by Joke Struyf and Katrien Schaubroeck (Philosophy Department, University of Antwerp).​

Stay tuned for next year's edition!
