New feature & point of emphasis
Barry and I would like to thank everyone (contributors and readers alike) for such a warm reception to New Work in Philosophy (NWP).
Since launching yesterday, we received some helpful suggestions from readers, and we hope to improve the site on an ongoing basis based on constructive feedback that we receive.
Today, we’re excited to roll out a new point of emphasis and one new feature:
In addition to posting contributions by authors on their own work and the work of others (e.g. book/article reviews), we encourage submissions by established (or somewhat established) philosophers that discuss/recommend new work by less/un-established philosophers who aren’t their colleagues or students. We also continue to encourage posts by or about the work of junior philosophers and underrepresented groups in the profession more generally.
We encourage readers to draw our attention to other Substack pages with professional philosophical content. Substack has a nifty “recommend” feature, so we will now feature an “Other Philosophy Substacks” button on this site’s top navigation bar. Recommendations will also go out to subscribers in a Substack Recommendation Digest (which can be unsubscribed from if you only want to receive notifications of original NWP posts).
Both new policies are intended to advance NWP’s aim of being an anti-elitist forum that highlights exciting new work by diverse philosophers at a wide variety of institutions, career stages, and employment situations.
Otherwise, NWP’s mission remains the same. We welcome unsolicited submissions from any professional philosopher (PhD students or beyond) or anyone who has previously published or presented philosophy in legitimate peer-reviewed venues. For more details, visit NWP’s About page.
If you would like to pitch a post or draw our attention to your Substack, just email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
