New Appointments in Philosophy
By S. Matthew Liao

The American Philosophical Association and the PhilPapers Foundation are pleased to announce New Appointments in Philosophy, a new service through PhilJobs: Jobs for Philosophers. This database of new appointments in philosophy departments worldwide will allow standardized collection of demographic and other data about appointments in philosophy. It will also provide a way to systematically disseminate news of recent appointments.

The service is now available at the following URL:

The website provides users with a list of new appointments, in reverse chronological order by submission. Users can also display appointments in various categories: senior/tenured, junior/untenured, fellowships, and others. The site also provides RSS feeds for each of these categories and a search engine.

Due to a failure to send out a final reminder, we are extending the deadline for submissions for the Second Annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy from April 1 to April 15th.

The original call is repeated below.

We are pleased to announce that the Second Annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy will be held at the University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, Sept. 4-5, 2014. There will be nine speakers:
– 6 invited speakers:

• Dave Estlund (keynote), Brown University,

• Serena Olsaretti (keynote), ICREA-Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain,
