Prize for feminist philosophy of science: contributions needed

it’s pretty great to see feminists getting awards!  Please help  if you can!


The Philosophy of Science Association Women’s Caucus plans to offer a prize biennially for the best published book, article, or book chapter, in English, in the area of feminist philosophy of science. Nominations, including self-nominations, are encouraged but not required; the Prize Committee will endeavor to include all relevant work from the major journals and publishers in its deliberations. Nominations should be submitted to the Co-chairs of the PSA Women’s Caucus by May 1 of even numbered years. Publications more than five years old at the time of the award (November of even-numbered years) will not be considered. The prize will be a cash award of $500. The prize will be endowed by voluntary contributions from members of the PSA.

The endowment needed is approximately $7000. The Prize Committee will consist of the current co-chairs of the PSA Women’s Caucus, a representative from Philosophy of Science (the editor or a member of the editorial board designated by the editor) and a representative from Hypatia (the editor or a member of the editorial board designated by the editor). The prize will be awarded at the biennial meeting of PSA, at the same time as other PSA prizes (currently just before the Presidential Address).Contributions on behalf of the Philosophy of Science Association Women’s Caucus Prize are requested. Contributions (in the form of a check or money order) should be made out to the Philosophy of Science Association and mailed to Gary L. Hardcastle, PSA Treasurer, Department of Philosophy, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania,

Bloomsburg, PA 17815, USA. Please include ‘PSA Women’s Caucus Prize’ on the check. Contributions to the Philosophy of Science Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, are tax-deductible. Contributors who include a name and address will receive a donation receipt.
