Nomination Time…

From Hypatia. (Speaking of pluralism in philosophy [as was the big thing this summer on the Leiter report and elsewhere], I doubt there is a journal that has published more widely in Anglo American, Continental, and critical race philosophies, as well as the sub-regions within those areas.)


Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophyis seeking an editor, co-editors, or an editorial team to  serve a five year term, beginning July 1, 2013. The journal issues a call for nominations for  editor(s) every five years in order to consider new directions for the journal and to encourage  others to get involved.

We encourage self-nominations as well as nominations of others. Self-nominations will be  accepted until May 1, 2012; those wishing to nominate others should submit your nominations  no later than March 1, 2012.

Hypatiais the preeminent journal for feminist philosophy; it has a wide international readership  and a robust institutional subscription base. It serves as an important resource not only for  philosophers, but for all those interested in philosophical issues raised by feminism, including  interdisciplinary women’s and gender studies scholars. The journal publishes work covering a  wide range of philosophical traditions and topics, and therefore we encourage nominations of  editors who have diverse interests and expertise in sub-areas and methodologies of Philosophy  and Feminist Studies. Candidates should have a record of publication in feminist philosophy;  some previous editorial experience is desirable.Hypatiais committed to the inclusion of the scholarship of feminists of color, trans-feminists, transnational feminists, queer, and differentlyabled  feminist philosophers. Individuals constituting an editorial team need not be members of  the same institution. Candidates (or at least one member of an editorial team) should be at an  institution with graduate students in Philosophy or Gender/Women’s Studies who can serve as  managing editors and editorial assistants. Candidates who prefer to co-edit and/or construct an  editorial team should indicate how they would share the work of the journal. Candidates should  also indicate what kinds of institutional support they expect to receive. If you are nominating yourself (or co-editors, or a team), please send a CV (or CVs for each  member of the editorial team), a brief statement of the directions in which you would like to take  Hypatia, and a brief account of your relevant experience. If you are nominating a team please also  include a statement that indicates how the work of editing the journal will be shared and where  the journal will be housed. If you are nominating others, please send a letter briefly stating your  reasons for nominating them, as well as their institutional/postal addresses, telephone numbers  and email addresses. We will contact them and request that they provide the same materials as  self-nominators should they wish to be considered.

Initial applications received by May 1, 2012 will be reviewed and a subset of applicants invited to  submit a full proposal. The full proposals must be sent by October 1, 2012. All proposals will be  judged on their merits.

Instructions for preparation of full proposals will be posted on theHypatiawebsite.  Please feel free to contact Lori Gruen or Alison Wylie with any questions.  Nominations should be sent to: Lori Gruen
