PIKSI

Here’s a small commercial announcement that might be of interest to you. You may be familiar with Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institute (PIKSI), which “is designed to encourage undergraduate students from under-represented groups to consider future study in the field of philosophy.” You can read more about it here:

There’s currently a fundraising drive on to support PIKSI. You can read more about this drive at:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/piksi-2014-changing-the-face-of-philosophy

This is certainly a worthy cause, given some of the recent less-than-edifying-reports of the experiences of women in the Philosophy world, and so please do consider supporting it.
