Databases, Lists, List-Serves, Blogs, and Wikis


The UPDirectory can be searched by gender to find living women in philosophy.  It also publicizes information about living philosophers who are members of other traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy. The purpose of the directory is to provide an easy-to-use resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the work of philosophers who belong to underrepresented groups within the discipline.  For the purposes of the UPDirectory, traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy are specified by gender, race, disability, and sexual orientation. 


Project Vox 

Project Vox seeks to recover the lost voices of women who have been ignored in standard narratives of the history of modern philosophy.  The site aims to change those narratives by changing what students around the world learn about philosophy's history.
