Welcome, Rita!  I started this site, and it's growing by leaps and bounds.  We have applied for grants to really encourage collaborative, publicly engaged research.  Great to have you on board, and it's interesting to see how your work has developed since we met many years ago in Santa Cruz.  Please invite others in your circles to join.  best wishes,  Sharon

Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)! We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests by joining an affinity group or participating in a discussion on one of the forums. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start a group or discussion of your own! As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. So thanks again for being a part of it, and thanks in advance for your contributions.  We also hope that you’ll join us at our in-person conference to be held Oct. 6-8, 2011 in Washington, DC.  Please note the details on the PPN website.
