Women Challenge Male Philosophers to Make Room in Unfriendly Field
Women at the meeting here said there are some bright spots in the discipline. At a table in a room displaying philosophy books for sale, three undergraduate women sat with copies of the undergraduate philosophy journal Stance. Undergraduates at Ball State University produce it, and all of its authors are students. The journal was started by a female student in 2006, and its current editor is female, as are the authors of about half of the papers in its latest issue.
David W. Concepcion, chairman of Ball State's department of philosophy and religious studies, is the journal's managing editor. He cajoled Kiley Neal, a soft-spoken senior majoring in creative writing with a minor in philosophy, to be this year's editor in chief.
"Being editor of a journal is a big step for me," said Ms. Neal. "But if Dave thinks I can do it, I can do it."
