What does effective intervention look like?
I’d like to collect together some readings on intervening in situations where bias is operating. I know we’ve mentioned here some web sites in the past, but perhaps we can get a number of sources together. One kind of situation is the sexist professor who, let’s suppose, consistently grades women unfairly, ignores them in class, and so on. Is there writing on what a colleague can do to address this situation? How might a department do it?
The second sort of situation is more the bias among equals. This topic might cover both the situation where the woman professor is ignored at meetings to the female grad students who hears male grad students talking about why women can’t do philosophy.
And there are all sorts of others.
Disclosure: I’d like to get sources together so I can point to them on this site at a paper I’m giving tomorrow.
