Andrew Janiak, “My own redemption came in the form of a digital humanities project here at Duke University, where I’ve taught philosophy for the past 15 years. In collaboration with an international team of scholars, a new website based at Duke, Project Vox, helps students and instructors reshape their teaching and research to include some of these forgotten voices.?

“[Project Vox’s] purpose is to gather and publicise material on early women philosophers, and ultimately to change the  narrative of the history of philosophy so that it includes them. . .The very useful Teaching tab offers general advice on how to include texts by women in early modern courses.”

 

Ravishly, March 2015

“By highlighting women philosophers, and making their writings easily available to a modern audience, Project Vox is changing what philosophy is, or can be.”
