International peer-reviewed journal of transContinental feminist philosophy linked to critical, cultural, gender, literary, queer, race, social, political theories.

philoSOPHIA is an international, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of feminist philosophy, theory, and creativity. Established in 2008, and “transContinentalized” in 2018, the journal annually publishes cutting-edge scholarship that extends the rich traditions of transformative feminist interventions and sociopolitical engagements. Actively connecting and creating divergent feminist approaches, cultures, genres, and histories, philoSOPHIA seeks to cultivate discursive alliances with, especially but not exclusively, critical race, disability, literary, media, and queer studies.
