Weird. I don't understand the use of the asterisk.

This is some A-level trolling. You don't design a CFP like this without knowing that it'll raise eyebrows. They're looking for attention and possibly for a fight. This will, then, be a fine occasion for more of the usual posturing.

Don't indulge them.

I see things like this and I thank God that he has delivered me from the darkness. It must be pure dread to live like that.

Someone should submit this to Feminist Philosophers gendered conference campaign. Would be amusing to see how they respond.

That's okay. I only go to events if I'm paid to do so.

Surely 'women*' is microaggressive in virtue of suggesting that some persons of woman*hood are not women simpliciter, but merely women*.

This oppresses persons of asterisks.

Put on a dress and change your name to Sally. Then you can use your new status as a protected class of fake woman to contribute to this class of fake scholarship.

What submission form? It's by email.

Besides, the précis says: "Priority will be given to proposals from women* scholars belonging to other marginalized groups."

Even if it did say it was for women* only... so what?

So it's bullshit.

So we're bitching about it.

So what?

Why not? 'Rachel' McKinnon already tried that, after an unsuccessful year on the job market as a man. The move worked.

What are you talking about? Did you not read the submission form? There is one. It is here.

It says what OP says it says, including the following:

"Do you belong to a group marginalized in a way other than because of your gender and/or sexual identity? ... Note: Only proposals coming from women* scholars working in the field of ancient and/or medieval philosophy will be considered for review."

If this was in the US, someone could file a Title IX complaint against the organizers. Too bad.
