This proposal sounds like it should be of interest to people working on women philosophers of the Early Modern period. Lewis Powell over at The Mod Squad thinks there should be a society for early modern philosophy, along side the big name societies, like the Kant or Hume societies. One merit of such a society is that it would create a forum for people working on not-so-big names from that period. This would of course affect people working on women philosophers. As Lewis notes:
I could be wrong, but it seems like Hume scholars just have a vastly greater number of opportunities to present work, get feedback, and interact with other scholars compared to, say, Locke scholars. And that’s talking about Locke, who is thought of as a central figure in the early modern period; this is even more pronounced for someone working on figures like Malebranche, Cavendish, Astell, and so on.
So if you’re interested, please go over to his post on the Mod Squad and leave a comment.
