About SWIP-Analytic

SWIP-Analytic is a branch of the New York Society for Women in Philosophy. SWIP-Analytic continues the Society for Women in Philosophy’s commitment to being a resource for women in philosophy. It provides a forum for women philosophers working in an analytic style in a variety of areas. The talks organized by the society are open to all and take place (roughly) monthly. Each year SWIP-Analytic awards the SWIP-Analytic Essay Prize. The winners are invited to present at our final meeting in the spring.

We support inclusiveness in the field, and strive to be a resource for all women (trans-inclusive), and individuals who belong to other underrepresented gender populations (e.g., nonbinary), who are working in analytic philosophy broadly conceived.

SWIP-Analytic was founded Fall 2013 by Chloé Cooper Jones , Zoe Jenkin, Marilynn Johnson, and Katherine Tullmann. Our current organizers are listed here.

About SWIP

The Society for Women in Philosophy was created in 1972 to support and promote women in philosophy. Since that time the Society for Women in Philosophy or “SWIP” has expanded to many branches around the world, including in the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Flanders, and Germany. SWIP organizations worldwide hold meetings and lectures that aim to support women in philosophy; some, such as SWIPshop, focus exclusively on feminist philosophy, while others, such as SWIP-Analytic, focus on women philosophers working in other areas.
