New Editorial Team Chosen for Hypatia
(adapted from the Department of Philosophy website)—After an extensive search, a new editorial team for Hypatia has been enthusiastically and unanimously accepted by the search committee and the newly reconstructed nonprofit board. The new coeditors are: Bonnie J. Mann, Erin McKenna, Camisha Russell, and Rocío Zambrana, all of the University of Oregon. Sarah LaChance Adams from the University of Wisconsin – Superior, will take on the role of managing editor. Their five-year tenure will begin January 1, 2019.
The new editorial team is very diverse, both philosophically and demographically. They state that “Our first priority as an editorial team will be to build on Hypatia’s already strong reputation by increasing both the philosophical and the demographic pluralism of the journal.” We are confident that under their editorship Hypatia will be an important resource for feminist thinking that is philosophical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional.
This will be the second time Hypatia has found a home at the University of Oregon. The Department of Philosophy at the University of Oregon is recognized as one of the foremost PhD-granting programs nationally and internationally to feature feminist philosophy as a key area of research. Its faculty includes recognized experts in a broad range of feminist thought. In spring 2018 the University of Oregon had eighteen PhD students working in feminist philosophy as a central focus; seven of these were international students.
The new editorial team will be supported by the University of Oregon’s philosophy department and the Center for the Study of Women in Society CSWS), a research center that promotes scholarship on gender and sexuality. The team will have office space provided by CSWS. They will also be supported by the University of Wisconsin – Superior.
