Hundleby has a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Western Ontario (2001), an MA from the University of Guelph (1995), and BA from the University of Toronto (1991). Hundleby works on feminist epistemology with a focus on philosophy of science, including the entry on “Feminist Empiricism” in the Handbook of Feminist Research (2007). She considers herself both a feminist empiricist – of the naturalist variety -- and a standpoint theorist.

Letitia Meynell is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Gender and Women’s Studies at Dalhousie University, specializing in philosophy of science and feminist philosophy. Her research explores the politics of science and the roles that images play in the construction and communication of scientific knowledge. Specifically, she is interested in seeing how the pictorial features scientific images serve to elucidate, communicate, or obscure certain features of the objects that are pictured. Recently, her research in this area has extended to include thought experiments and machine made images, particularly fMR images. The other strand of her research involves feminist critiques of biology. She is particularly interested in the ways in which popular discussions of the differences between males and females continue to reify the view that the sexes are radically dimorphic, despite the current recognition of the importance of development in biology, which strongly suggests there is considerable plasticity and variation in the majority of biological kinds. She is currently extending these ideas to feminist discussions of evolutionary psychology. Her interest in feminism has also led to a collaboration with Sue Campbell and Susan Sherwin on a volume of essays in feminist philosophy, Embodiment and Agency (PSU Press, 2009).
