Project Vox

Project Overview: 
Project Vox is a digital archive of resources associated with early modern women philosophers who have been unjustly ignored in the narratives of the field. The archive's purpose is to aid and encourage lessons on these women philosophers being added into Philosophy courses in all levels of education. From Lady Masham, Margaret Cavendish and Anne Conway in England to Émilie Du Châtelet in France, many women played significant roles in the development of modern philosophy, but their contributions have often gone unnoticed. The website has three primary goals. First, it seeks to provide students at all levels with the materials they need to begin exploring the rich philosophical ideas of these philosophers. Second, it aims to provide teachers with the material they need to incorporate these philosophers and their works into academic courses. Third and finally, it aims to help transform our current conception of the canon. To learn more about Project Vox or find out how you can participate, contact projectvox@duke.edu.
