4 thoughts on “Conference: Under-represented Groups in Philosophy

  1. It certainly looks fascinating. I hope the organizers are planning to make the papers widely available. (Isn’t Louise at UMass Amherst?)

  2. This conference program looks subversive in several respects. I especially appreciate the fact that the organizers have explicitly requested information about Accessibility Requirements. Few philosophy conferences, even feminist philosophy conferences, take this very practical and signficant step toward creating non-exclusionary academic and colleagial contexts.
