The NAKS Women Scholars Network was launched in June, 2021. Currently, there are nearly 50 members in the network. They range from advanced grad students to full professors. They are organized into 6 cohorts based on their areas of specialization. This cohort structure has provided opportunities for informal mentoring, mutual support, and exchange of experiences, ideas, and perspectives among peers. Many of their projects are featured on the Virtual NAKS.
Now we are seeking to expand the network. We invite applications from Kant scholars who self-identify as women and who belong in any of the following categories: (1) PhD candidates who are well into their dissertation work, (2) junior scholars (PhD in hand, non-tenured, including those who are not in tenure-track positions), (3) associate professors, (4) full professors, and (5) independent scholars who have a PhD.
Eligibility: All current NAKS members who self-identify as women, belong in one of the four categories specified above, and use English as one of their primary languages of research. If you are not yet a NAKS member, you may follow this link to become one.
How to apply: fill out this form by June 30, 2022.
What to expect: You will receive an email from Huaping Lu-Adler by July 20, 2022. The email will likely be addressed to the entire cohort to which you are assigned, with detailed instructions about next steps.

Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the women scholars who have inspired the idea of this initiative through their practice of mentoring, formally or informally, the younger generations of women. Without them, many of us would not be where we are today. Thanks also to Andrew Chignell (President-Secretary of NAKS) and Eric Watkins (President of the Board of Trustees) as well as Anne Margaret Baxley, Patricia Kitcher, Pauline Kleingeld, Rhoda Kotzin, Helga Varden, Rachel Zuckert for their support of the initiative.
