De Ethica. A Journal of Philosophical, Theological and Applied Ethics.
Why should feminist ethics and gender be a central focus in the work of philosophical and theological ethics ? While this question has been discussed within the fields of feminist and gender theory, philosophers and theologians have often overlooked the category of gender in their work.
Is feminist ethics a distinct ethical theory, or rather a category of inquiry in any approach to ethics ? How does the feminist perspective enrich our ability to address such subjects as power, social, cultural, and political participation, poverty, racism, misogyny, homo/transphobia, economic inequality, and healthcare ? And how does this lens sharpen the reinterpretation of normative understandings of moral, ethical, and religious traditions ? To what degree is the rise of nationalism connected with normative imageries of masculinity and femininity, which now require ethical interrogation, especially against the backdrop of social disintegration ?
We want to strike a balance between theoretical inquiries and historical or contemporary case studies. We welcome contributions from philosophical, theological, and applied ethics, as well as from political and social theory, history, psychology, and the sciences. The topic of feminist ethics and the question of gender can be approached in many ways.
