Donald Rutherford and I (Lisa Shapiro) have been compiling a resource of women working across the history of philosophy, from the ancients through to the early twentieth century, in the English speaking world. The aim is pretty straightforward:to make it easier for those planning conferences, edited volumes, speakers on panels, and the like, to think of women to invite. However, the method has been somewhat less than perfect. We’ve used the internet to go through what we hope is a comprehensive list of departments in Australasia, Canada and the UK, but that kind of comprehensiveness is simply not possible for the US. The first run has taken the PGR top 50, but it is clear that lots of women historians of philosophy working in the US have been left out. There’s no way we are going to be able to be comprehensive with regard to the US, but we think we can do better. But rather than simply rely on who comes to our own minds, we’d like to ask for help.
You can find the draft document here. And please note that it is a DRAFT. No doubt there will lots of room for improvement, but this is a start. There are tabs for each geographical region. If you see that someone obvious is missing, please send an email with as much information as possible (email; general area of the history of philosophy; specializations) to fill in the spreadsheet to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our general taxonomy (for better or worse) has been : Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance, Early Modern, Kant, German Idealism, Other (which gets fleshed out in the specialization section).
