Teaching Women Philosophers – Analytic Philosophy

In 2019 the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists hosted the Libori Summer School 2019, organized by Director Ruth E. Hagengruber. The Libori Summer School 2019 was themed around Teaching Women Philosophers. We already look forward for the forthcoming book “Teaching Women Philosophers. Ideas and Concepts from Women Philosophers over 2000 years” based on the talks given at the Libori Summer Schools 2019. During that conference Katarina Mihaljević presented on  “A Case Study of using Rose Rand’s Work and Life to Challenge the Traditional Distinction between Minor and Marginalized Figures”.  See here her abstract for the book:
Abstract: Rosalia (Rose) Rand (1903-1980) was an Austrian philosopher and logician of Polish-Jewish descent who was a regular and active member of the Vienna Circle between 1924 and 1938. Rand’s intellectual activity in Vienna between 1924 and 1938 comprised (1) participation in the Circle’s meetings (where she also often acted as a note-taker), (2) philosophical work on logic and the philosophy of language, and (3) work as a researcher in a psychiatric hospital at the University of Vienna. Rand’s philosophical work and her efforts to establish a philosophical career provide excellent example of the importance that external; material conditions play in determining the development of one’s philosophical contribution and subsequent (lack of) access to the philosophical canon.
Recently, Katarina Mihaljević spoke on “Opportunities in the digitization of archival sciences for the research in the history of philosophy: example of Rose Rand” at the workshop “Women in Analytic Philosophy. Past and Present” organized by University of Warsaw, University of Vienna and Humbildt University Berlin.
