Credit Where It’s Due

Recently, we’ve mentioned plenty of instances of conferences where, at first glance, you’d get the impression that only male philosophers work in that area. Which is what makes it all the more satisfying to draw attention to this up-coming workshop where half of the contributers are women, and the topic is in the kind of area that we might ordinarily think is male-heavy. I don’t know if this is intentional, but it seems to good to be accidental. I recall that its organiser, Dan Lopez de Sa, has commented here in the past and suspect he’ s paid some attention to this issue. So, credit where it’s due. Bravo!

One thought on “Credit Where It’s Due

  1. Speaking of which… The recent Wired Live business conference apparently had a notable lack of female speakers.
