The Co-Chairs, as stated then, are Sally Haslanger (MIT), Serene Khader (Brooklyn/CUNY), and Yannik Thiem (Villanova). We are very pleased now to announce the appointment of the additional Task Force Members:

Statement by the Editor of Hypatia
As Editor of an academic journal that espouses pluralism and diversity, I believe that Hypatia should publish on a wide array of topics employing a wide array of methodologies. I believe that a community of scholars should contest concepts and engage in dialogue within the pages of the journal to advance our collective project of educating—students and ourselves.
