Women and Philosophy Exhibit in the Regenstein!

Women and Philosophy Exhibit in the Regenstein!

Two UWIP board members, Julie Huh and Alaina Bompiedi, have been working with Bibliographer of Religion and Philosophy Anne Knafl to develop a Woman and Philosophy exhibit on the fourth floor of UChicago’s main campus library, the Regenstein:

Why are there so few women philosophers? Why does it matter? This exhibit responds to the ongoing underrepresentation of women within the field of Philosophy by highlighting the work of three University of Chicago faculty members: Hannah Arendt, Marjorie Grene, and Martha Nussbaum. Selections from their work will be juxtaposed with materials that reflect the historical and contemporary influence of women and gender tensions on the study of Philosophy at the University.
