ECERP2015 Conference Theme: "Power"
Power, used or abused, conceptually brings together several central philosophical questions of ethics and religion. What is power? What conditions make its exercise legitimate? How is illegitimate use to be defined? Is power itself, as some have claimed, neutral? Can its exercise ever be neutral? Can there be an unconscious use or abuse of power? If so, how does it function?

Gender equality is essential for the achievement of human rights for all. But Women are often discriminated against many form of social and economic factors. Women form the majority of the world's poorest people and the number of women living in rural poverty has increased by 50% since 1975. Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours and produce half of the world's food, yet they earn only 10% of the world's income and own less than 1% of the world's property. Violence against women throughout the world and in all cultures prevails on an unimaginable scale, and women's access to justice is often paired with discriminatory obstacles in law as well as in practice.

This roundtable aims to imagine how the PhD can be reconceived. How can we open up new possibilities for PhDs that respond to the ways the academy and job market have changed?

Because of his early silence on the issue, when Jacques Derrida is pressed concerning "the materialist text" in Positions (1971), his response might seem enigmatic: If "matter in this general economy designates . . . radical alterity," then "what [he] write[s] can be considered 'materialist.'" Far from absent, materiality will have been silently at work in Derrida, perhaps, from the beginning and in general.
