The workshop aims to focus on and critically discuss female logicians such as Christine Ladd-Franklin, Alice Ambrose, Margaret Masterman, Ruth Barcan Marcus, Ruth Barcan Marcus and Val Plumwood. They have played an extraordinary role in the history and philosophy of logic, advocating at the same time for gender equality in order to make logic more open, diverse and effective. Parallels will be drawn with well-known figures of logic (e.g. Peirce, Frege, Russell and Wittgenstein) and a critical look will be taken at the historiography of logic, which still resonates today.

The event will be held virtually and is locally organized by: Claudia Anger, PD Dr. Jens Lemanski, Dr. Andrea Reichenberger (FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany), in cooperation with the Society for the History of Science, Medicine and Technology (GWMT) and FILEH: “Innovative Teaching in Logic”.

Speakers: Jasmin Özel, Claudia Anger, John David Loner, Siobhan Chapman, Frederique Janssen-Lauret, Elena Ficara

The event will end with a roundtable discussion. Invited guests: Francine F. Abeles (Kean University, NJ, USA), Carolin Antos-Kuby (University of Konstanz, Germany), Ursula Martin (University of Edinburgh and Wadham College Oxford, UK)

Everyone interested is cordially invited to join the event. Please contact Claudia Anger (claudia.anger@fernuni-hagen.de) for registration by January 13th, 2022.
