The UPDirectory <http://www.theupdirectory.
a long and complicated process, but the product is definitely worth it. Please spread the word!!! Further info below.
The UPDirectory publicizes information about philosophers who are members of 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.
The directory includes information about philosophers who belong to traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy and who (1) write
philosophy in English and (2) have a position researching or teaching philosophy, or (3) have previously held a position in philosophy and are
still active in philosophy, or (4) have published an article in a philosophy journal or a book on a philosophy list, or (5) either hold or are working towards a PhD. or M.A. in philosophy and conduct research in philosophy.
For the purposes of the UPDirectory, traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy include women philosophers, black philosophers, Asian
philosophers, Latina/o and Hispanic Philosophers, Indigenous/Native philosophers, LGBTQ philosophers, and philosophers with a disability, among
others. For a full list of self-identification categories, please use the ‘Self-Identification’ link <http://www.theupdirectory.
Please note this is a work in progress and we hope to make it as comprehensive as possible. If you are a philosopher from an underrepresented group, please fill out the ‘Want to Add Yourself?’ form <http://www.theupdirectory.
If you already have an entry in the directory, please check your entry to ensure that the information is correct and up to date. Fill in the‘Request
