Claudia Card (1940-2015) (Updated)

Claudia Card, Emma Goldman Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has died. Professor Card received her undergraduate degree in philosophy at Wisconsin, and joined the faculty there after getting her PhD at Harvard in 1969. She wrote on a wide range of topics in ethics and social philosophy, and is especially well-known for her work in feminist philosophy. She died from cancer yesterday.

You can read more about her at her faculty page and at Wikipedia. I will post links to obituaries and memorial notices as they appear (please email them to me or link to them in the comments).
