Feminist Philosophy Connections

Hypatia Author Interviews

Hypatia is pleased to announce the release of author interviews.  We've asked authors to comment on their articles and offer some additional thoughts for future generations of feminists.  These short videos, aimed at a general audience, are a wonderful accompaniment to the articles for undergraduate and graduate courses. If you are interested in doing an author interview and have plans to be in the Philadelphia area, please contact us!  We need a few weeks notice but we'd love to include you in the Hypatia video interview offerings.  Contact the editor at editor@hypatiaphilosophy.org.

Individuals or groups may request up to $5000 to support projects that serve an underrepresented group (or groups) in philosophy and/or otherwise promote the diversity within the discipline.  Priority will be given to projects that fall within the field of feminist philosophy understood in its most expansive sense.  Hypatia Diversity Grants may support workshops to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in philosophy, conferences for the dissemination of diverse philosophical perspectives, and innovative projects that further expand the borders of philosophy as a field in the humanities and as a profession.
