Guest Lecture

The EPSA Women’s Caucus aims to organise a guest lecture at every biennial conference of the EPSA. The first of these was given by Prof. Helen Beebee (University of Manchester) at the the 6th biennial conference, which took place at the University Exeter in 2017.

    Women in Philosophy of Science: Where Are We, Where Do We Want to Be, and How Do We Get There?

    As everyone knows, women are hugely under-represented in professional philosophy in general, and in the philosophy of science in particular. (Is the situation worse in the philosophy of science? That’s a question I’ll address in the course of my talk.) How did this happen, and what can we do about it? In this talk, I present some data and some pertinent results from social psychology, and make some concrete suggestions for things all of us can do—often pretty small things—that might, if we’re lucky, make a difference.
