Over the course of the next couple of months, Project Vox will be reflecting changes we’ve been working on over the past year. In the past, Project Vox’s primary focus has been on early modern European and British women philosophers. Our Revealing Voices blog series began featuring scholars working on philosophers beyond the early modern period as well as beyond the Western tradition. Now, those changes will be seen in our main philosopher entries.
We are currently revising our mission statement to show our commitment to feature philosophers unjustly ignored and excluded from the narrative of the history of philosophy. Our mission remains to expand and challenge the traditional philosophical canon and to provide resources to educators and students who would like to work on philosophers beyond that canon. Working with our Extending New Narratives partners, it is our great hope to highlight the extraordinary work done by marginalized philosophers. Project Vox recognizes that identities historically oppressed and marginalized—such as but not limited to race, class, gender, and nationhood—are not static nor monolithic. We hope that our community feels welcome to engage with us in meaningful ways, whether that be feedback or collaboration, as we grow.
