Project Vox: Recovering Lost Voices of Women in Philosophy

A new project based at Duke University seeks to become the ‘virtual hub for an international network of scholars to work together in expanding our research and teaching beyond the traditional philosophical “canon” and beyond traditional narratives of modern philosophy’s history.’ Among the figures Project Vox seeks to recover are women associated with Cambridge Platonistism, Anne Conway and Damaris Cudworth Masham.

Project Vox has three central goals:

First, it seeks to provide students at all levels with the materials they need to begin exploring the rich philosophical ideas of Cavendish, Conway, Du Châtelet and Masham. Second, it aims to provide teachers with the material they need to incorporate these four figures into their courses. Third and finally, it aims to help transform our current conception of the canon.

The Project can be found online here:
