Philosophy Exception Website 1 December 2021 EQUITY, DIVERSITY, and INCLUSION IN ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY WELCOME TO OUR PROJECT Academic philosophy is well known to have problems of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). A growing body of work identifies and documents these issues, challenging complacency about the status quo and calling for action and interventions that will make philosophy more equitable, diverse, and inclusive. Our aim, in assembling EDI-Philosophy resources, is to make them readily available to anyone who is interested in discussing and addressing these issues. We’ve organized them (tentatively) into four categories: “Calls to Action” that name these problems and take stock of them; “Documentation” of their varied forms and effects; efforts to understand them, “Theorizing the Philosophy Exception”; and recommendations for making a difference, “Interventions.” There are lots of overlaps between these categories; we’re developing tools that will support searches and queries tailored to your interests. There is also much more to do; thus far we’ve focused on Englishlanguage publications that appear in journals, edited volumes, books and, where possible, in society newsletters and reports. We include links to web-based resources that focus on EDI issues in Philosophy but we haven’t systematically tracked down online discussions. In short, this is a work in progress! Do please let us know what we’re missing, and how we can make this archive of resources more useful. The Philosophy Exception project team Alison Wylie (director) Matthew Smithdeal (coordinator) Kristin Conrad Kilgallen and Jasper Heaton (crucial resource-sleuthing, Mendeley-wrangling, website design) Cam Gilbert (additional research assistance) Eric Simons (graphic design and aesthetics advice) Alice Everly (human-database interface advice) About When two of us (Matthew & Alison) set out, in the Spring of 2019, to update an archive of EDIPhilosophy literature Alison had accumulated over the years, we were taken aback by how much had been published, especially in the previous decade. At the time we identified 60 substantive articles, in addition to society reports, and shorter notes and commentaries published in society newsletters and posted on blogs; as of Spring 2021 The Philosophy Exception web-bibliography includes more than twice this number of EDI-Philosophy publications. Although much of this literature testifies to serious, continuing EDI issues in Philosophy, this seemed a hopeful sign that the tide was turning, that a critical mass of philosophy students and colleagues are actively addressing these issues, documenting, analyzing, and theorizing the “philosophy exception,” and exploring a range of strategies for translating what we’re learning, collectively, into action aimed at bringing about concrete change in our field. We also found that these resources were so widely dispersed – often appearing in publications philosophers don’t typically follow – that they’re in danger of being overlooked and marginalized, disappeared by the very mechanisms of exclusion to which they draw attention. We wanted to make sure that this growing body of work gets the attention it deserves, and that the insights, advice, and experience reported in EDI-Philosophy publications are readily available to those who share our passion for making philosophy all that it can and should be. As Eric Schwitzgebel puts it in his introduction to the APA Diversity in Philosophy Departments post: “Philosophy should be one of the most diverse of the academic disciplines, not among the least diverse” (2020).

We include here articles and reports that name the problems and call on the profession to take action to ameliorate them.
