Prof. Kathryn Gines has been awarded a fellowship from the Center for Humanities Information for her project "Collegium of Black Women Philosophers in a Digital Age".  Prof. Gines is founding Director of the Collegium for Black Women Philosophers and plans to use the fellowship to enhance the digital resources available for the Collegium's activities. Prof. Gines notes that "as the founding director of the CBWP I am committed to recruiting and retaining Black women into philosophy, archiving our significant contributions to the field, and making this ever-expanding archive available to the widest possible audience."  The project supported by the CHI Fellowshiphas three main components: 1) an enhanced interactive Collegium of Black Women Philosophers website; 2) collaboration with online encyclopedias of philosophy to feature scholarly entries on Black women philosophers; and 3) collaboration with online comprehensive bibliographies and electronic journal collections to feature the publications of Black women philosophers.  The Fellowship will help Dr. Gines use reduced teaching obligations to pursue these laudable goals.
