Linda Martín Alcoff

Linda Martín Alcoff is a professor of philosophy at Hunter College, City University of New York. Alcoff specializes in epistemology, feminism, race theory and existentialism. She is the author of ''Visible Identities: Race, Gender, and the Self'' (2006) and ''The Future of Whiteness'' (2015).

Alcoff has called for greater inclusion of historically underrepresented groups in philosophy and notes that philosophers from these groups have created new fields of inquiry, including feminist philosophy, critical race theory, and LGBTQ philosophy. To help address these issues, with Paul Taylor and William Wilkerson, she started "The Pluralist’s Guide to Philosophy". From 2012 to 2013 she served as president of the American Philosophical Association, Eastern Division. In February 2018 she was appointed president of the board of directors of Hypatia, Inc., the non-profit corporation that owns the feminist philosophy journal ''Hypatia''. Provided by Wikipedia
