Why a virtual conference?

Why a virtual conference?

The main reason is accessibility.  The ESWIP Executive Officers and I thought it might be interesting, and in keeping with ESWIP’s values and commitments, to try out this new format as a way of making the conference more accessible to a wide variety of people, such as (but certainly not limited to): students, the underemployed, and all of us with either already limited or newly reduced travel funding; those whose disabilities may make traditional conference formats and/or travel difficult; feminist philosophers  who might otherwise have difficulty traveling to the east coast.  We are also hoping that this new format will allow for different kinds of discussion, responses, and interactions—if you’ve taught an online or a blended class, you may be familiar with the ways that online interaction can allow for  thoughtful and robust discussions in ways unavailable in the traditional classroom.

I hope that this conference can live up to these goals!  I welcome your feedback.
