An email from the philosophers of Northwestern’s WiPhi is reposted below.
We hope this email finds you all well. We are writing to you on behalf of WiPhi (Northwestern’s group of women in philosophy). We would like to contribute to the creation of a thriving and supportive intellectual community for women in the profession. Toward that end, we are attempting to organize a work-in-progress workshop for all women philosophers (graduate and faculty) in the Chicagoland area.
The purpose of this workshop would be to provide an opportunity for women philosophers to present their work-in-progress and receive constructive feedback in an informal and collaborative environment. Participants can present on any topic in philosophy.
In the beginning we plan to meet once a month. However, depending upon the demand and the number of participants, we may hold bi-weekly meetings in the future. In order to facilitate and encourage participation from graduate students and faculty at other Chicagoland universities, we plan on holding our meetings at Northwestern’s downtown campus.
Any and all graduate or faculty women are encouraged to participate, regardless of whether they anticipate in presenting their own work for discussion.
If you are interested in being part of this workshop, either as a presenter or participant, and being on the email list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email will be added to a listserv and you will receive more specific information regarding organization and upcoming meetings. Please note in your email whether you would be interested in presenting during the 2014-2015 academic year.
We would like to schedule our first meeting in the fall, so if you are interested in meeting during the Fall term, in addition to emailing us please fill out the following “whenisgood” by Monday, October 10th: http://whenisgood.net/bbeg5gb
Please, feel free to circulate this email to anyone who may be interested in joining our meetings.
We look forward to hearing from you!
