I’m hoping I can please trouble you for some help. I’m doing some research into how women philosophers were publicly perceived, before 1940. To that end, I’m looking for vintage popular biographies/newspaper coverage etc about women philosophers (in their role as philosophers). For example, Thomas Birch wrote a popular biography of Catharine Trotter Cockburn discussing her philosophy; and UK newspapers covered Susan Stebbing’s appointment as a professor of philosophy. I’m interested in anything, from any period of philosophy.
If you know of any materials along these lines, I’d be grateful if you could please email me? My address is: email@example.com
I’m not aware of any scholarship on this topic, but if there is, I’d be glad to know of that too!
