Women comprise a significantly smaller percentage of the Society of Christian Philosophers than of the American Philosophical Association. Is this a problem? Do Christian Philosophers have particular reasons to be troubled by under-representation of women in the profession? Are there positive steps Christian philosophers or institutions can take to increase the numbers of women in philosophy?
We invite “younger” women philosophers (Ph.D since 2000) to participate in a panel discussion of these issues at the Pacific/Mountain Region Conference of the SCP. Please send your name, institutional connection, and a brief synopsis of your ideas to Phil Smith: psmith@georgefox.edu. Conference fees will be waived for panel participants.

Society of Christian Philosophers
2011 Pacific and Mountain Regional Conference
March 3-5, 2011
Hosted by George Fox University, Newberg, OR

    I think that this is a great idea, and hope that the discussion at the conference will be shared with the SCP exec committee.
