I’m a prize fellow in philosophy at All Souls College Oxford, where I recently finished my D.Phil on the philosophy of perception.
I’ve just launched a website, www.academia.edu, which does two things:
- It displays academics around the world in a ‘tree’ format, according to what university/department they are affiliated with.
- It enables an academic to have an easy-to-maintain academic webpage. My webpage on Academia.edu is here: http://oxford.academia.edu/RichardPrice
My hope for the site is that it will list every academic – Faculty members, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students - in the world, and display where they are working. I also hope people will use the site to keep track of what people in their field are working on.
I’m trying to spread the word about www.academia.edu, so, if you have a minute, please visit the site, and add yourself to your department. (Or add your department/university to the tree if it is not there already; it is easy to add a university or department by clicking on the arrows).
And do spread the word to your friends and colleagues if you can.
Dr. Richard Price,
