A biannual journal of feminist continental philosophy established in 2008.

philoSOPHIA is an international, peer-reviewed journal for scholarship that engages the rich traditions of feminist theory and continental philosophy, both broadly construed. The journal aims to broaden the discipline of philosophy and enrich the practices of feminist theory, bringing the conceptual resources of these fields together to address pressing socio-political issues. We encourage a wide range of theoretical approaches, particularly those exploring feminist philosophical questions through the lenses of queer, critical race, disability, and transnational perspectives.

Cole’s research bridges political theory and American politics/culture, linking central questions of political thought—especially formulations of justice, the nature of vulnerability, precarity and subjugation, and the possibility of resistance or change—with an examination of concrete political ideologies, rhetoric, and law/policy-making, emphasizing gender, sexuality, and race/ethnicity. Cole is the author of The Cult of True Victimhood: From the War on Welfare to the War on Terror (Stanford University Press). Her articles have appeared in SignsAmerican StudiesFeminist StudiesWomen’s Studies Quarterly, the Michigan Law ReviewGender, Work & Organization, Les Cahiers du GenreCritical Horizons, and the National Women’s Studies Association Journal.
