New: Feminist Philosophy Archive Directory

A new online directory has been created “to make the archives of feminist philosophers, journals, and organizations easy to find.”

[Alexandra Gallagher, “Many Hands” (detail)]

Feminist Philosophy Archive Directory has just launched, and is in the process of building its list of archives, which themselves “contain a range of primary sources, including unpublished writings, recordings and videos, syllabi, and correspondence”.

Its aim is to make “feminist philosophers’ archives easier to find” and “help researchers dig more deeply into feminist philosophers’ work, see connections, and understand how feminist philosophers influenced each other and how their ideas evolved over time.”

The idea for the archive came from Marilyn Frye (Michigan State), who developed it with Ann Garry (Cal State LA), Sandra Harding (UCLA), and Alison Jaggar (Colorado).

They are looking to further build the directory, and write:

We need your help to make this directory useful! Send us information about archives that are not listed here. Create an archive for yourself if you haven’t yet done so, and send us information about it.  Encourage others to do the same–let’s help stop the tendency of women and other marginalized people to undervalue our own work! As more feminists offer their archives for research, future scholars will gain a deeper understanding of feminist work and the context surrounding its development.

The site is supported in part by a grant from the American Philosophical Association.

You can learn more about and visit the directory here.
