Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy Finds New Home at the University of Oregon

Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, the highest ranking journal in its field, is now based out of the University of Oregon’s philosophy department. It will be co-edited by four faculty members: Bonnie Mann, Erin McKenna, Camisha Russell, and Rocio Zambrana. The journal will also receive additional support from the university’s Center for the Study of Women in Society.

“This journal has been instrumental in driving the conversation around feminist philosophy and legitimizing the field,” said co-editor Bonnie Mann. “We are thrilled to welcome the publication to the University of Oregon, where we can play a role in shaping the field of feminist philosophy on a national and international level.”

Feminist philosophy is a central pillar to the university’s overall philosophy program. Unlike many other philosophy graduate programs, the University of Oregon’s program is unique in that graduate students are required to fulfill core requirements in feminist theory. Additionally, women make up the majority of the university’s philosophy faculty.

The new editors believe that Hypatia will build upon the University of Oregon’s established foundation and enrich the university’s academic reputation and international visibility. They have plans to include special issues, guest editors, and clusters of papers with overlapping concepts in future publications.

“In this particular time, when feminist gains are particularly fragile, we believe in the significance of Hypatia to both emerging and established feminist and marginalized voices in philosophy,” the editors wrote in an introductory statement. “In the context of this fragility, we have an opportunity to build on the strengths of the journal, as well as recognizing its shortcomings and aspiring to its promise.”
