Inclusive Teaching

Make your teaching more inclusive

A particularly pressing issue faced by women and other under-represented groups in philosophy is the exclusion of their works from syllabi. It is no news that such exclusion affects both students and academics. To mitigate this, the Women’s Caucus has brought together a variety of resources ranging from online directories to resources in inclusive pedagogy with the aim of encouraging the inclusion of the works of under-represented groups in philosophy of science.

We are always looking for more resources to add to this page. If you have any that you would like to see added here, please contact us.

Helpful resources

    • Minorities and Philosophy: An excellent and wide variety of resources.
    • UPDirectoryThe UPDirectory publicizes information about philosophers who are members of traditionally under-represented groups in philosophy. The purpose of the directory is to provide an easy-to-use resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the work of philosophers who belong to under-represented groups within the discipline. You can also add yourself to the directory.
    • The Diversity Reading ListThe Diversity Reading List is a new online resource for teaching philosophy that aims to combat under-representation of particular groups and encourage an increase in the demographic diversity of the subject. This project involves collecting high quality texts in philosophy, written by authors from under-represented groups and promotes the use of their work in teaching. The website encourages and enables teachers and lecturers to easily find and use these texts in their syllabi and reading lists.
