Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I am interested in supporting my department's desire to expand our public engagement. Furthermore, as a student of pragmatism I wish to develop a more fully transactional view of the relation between theory and practice in my pedagogy as a form of communal inquiry.

I'm a graduate assistant at the Public Philosophy Journal, and I noticed that you expressed an interest in curating links for the journal a while back. While our full journal platform is still being developed, we have begun to curate links and blogs of interest to the community, and I would like to encourage you to help when you can! At the moment, link curation is being done by myself and Kris Klotz, another graduate assistant, but we have set up a URL submission form that you and other community members can help our curated links page grow.
Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)! A link to our User Guide can be found on the home page in the right column. We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests. While we welcome all members interested in public philosophy, the particular aim of this site is to help develop and support collaborative projects that include philosophers as partners in research and/or social action projects that in some way contribute a public good and/or further public discussion and deliberation. If you have questions about the PPN or our aims, please see the report on the founding of the Network here:http://publicphilosophynetwork.ning.com/page/founding-reportand read through the general discussion forums. As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. We strongly encourage you to upload a photo on your profile pages and to complete your profile so that other members with similar interests can network with you. You can set privacy settings to control who has access to your page and who sends you e-mail. For directions on this, click here. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects. There are two ways to become actively involved on the PPN on-line network: 1) The affinity groups provide members with the opportunity to collaborate around a particular issue within public philosophy. 2) The general forums on the main page are intended to foster “metadiscussions” on issues in public philosophy that cut across specific issues—these discussions may focus on practical or philosophical concerns. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start an affinity group or add a thread to a general discussion forum. As we raise more funds, we will be adding new collaborative research tools specific to our work and goals that are not available on facebook and other networking sites.
