Women and Brains

Women in philosophy are notorious underrepresented.  Brit Brogaard has written a useful summary of a recent APA symposium on the status of women in the profession.

You might notice that women are especially underrepresented on Brains.  Out of 14 contributors (including me), only one is a woman.  (Thank you, Anna-Mari.)  This is not for lack of effort on my part.  I personally invited all the women who work in this area and came to mind (and whom I knew) to become contributors.  A few accepted, but they haven’t posted anything yet, so they are not listed as contributors. 

If I know you but haven’t thought of inviting you yet, you are hereby invited.  Let me also remind you that you don’t have to wait for me to invite you to participate.  If you work in this area and you’d like to become a contributor, please contact me.
