Service to the anglophone community
Service to academic philosophy societies
Together with Chrisy Xiyu Du, I created and continue to maintain fediphilosophy.org, a Mastodon instance for researchers and teachers whose work engages with philosophy.
In 2022, I was elected as the junior co-chair for the PSA DEI Caucus. The position lasts for 4 years (2 terms).
Service to students
I co-founded Wonder Philosophy, a workshop and resource pool for students wanting to know more about philosophy graduate school. Read an interview with the APA blog here.
Note: I won’t be directly involved in organizing in the near future, but I’m happy to provide organizational support for people who’d like to start their own workshop. I also own the website and so can provide advertisement space.
Podcast about Humanities scholars in alt ac careers
I host a podcast, Off Campus, that interviews people with postgraduate training in the Humanities who works in alternative-to-academia careers. If you are/know someone who fits this description and would like to share your/their journey as a Humanities scholar in the alt ac world, please let me know!
Service to the Chinese community
Articles about academic life
I’ve written a number of articles about my journey through academic philosophy, including information about how to apply to grad school, tips and pitfalls in writing research papers, what the job market is like, etc. They are archived on my WeChat official account, @Scatteredplot. You can also find me on the sinophone philosophy forum Aspasia, created by Ding.
Panel series on demystifying academia, at Women Overseas
Together with Chrisy Xiyu Du, we hosted a number of panel shows where Chinese women academics share experiences and advice about various aspects of their academic lives. The panel series is part of the sinophone women community, Women Overseas (YouTube, podcast).
