A few initial observations to get some discussion going:
1. As has always been the case, the rankings are largely based upon the presence of a single senior faculty member working in the field.
2. Here’s a quick breakdown of the seven evaluators for the Philosophy of Art Specialty Ranking:
- # of women: 0/7
- # who work primarily in History of Philosophy: 3/7
- # of junior faculty: 1/7
- # with degrees from US programs: 4/7
- # with positions that are currently or have primarily been located outside US: 5/7
