A number of first-time visitors are stopping by as the academic year begins and word of the blog gets around, and ProPhilosophy would like to welcome them and give a quick introduction to the site. ProPhi aims to provide comprehensive news about and of interest to professional philosophers, and to do so without commentary. This includes tenured and tenure-track hires, promotions, other changes to philosophy departments, philosophers writing for non-academic audiences, and non-philosophers doing philosophy. Comments are allowed on all posts, and anonymity is guaranteed (when requested) for contributors. A venture like ProPhi works best when work is outsourced, so please pass on anything you think fits the aims of ProPhi to email@example.com. A huge thanks goes out to those who have already contributed.
The tabs at the top take you to a list of tenure-track hires and postdocs, promotions, and tenured hires. Last year, ProPhilosophy had the help of 63 department chairs, directors of graduate studies, and placement directors in compiling the most comprehensive list of tenure-track and postdoc hires available, and the help of Carolyn Dicey Jennings (Antwerp) in analyzing the hiring data. As hiring begins again, comments are welcome on the 2012-2013 page.
Enjoy, and please spread the word.
