Minorities & Philosophy Chapter

What We Do

This chapter, established in Fall 2023, aims broadly at addressing (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc., and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives.

Meeting formats include:

  • external or internal speakers, 

  • reading groups, 

  • film screenings, 

  • mentorship events for undergraduates or graduates, 

  • panel discussions, 

  • practical workshops (e.g., on communication techniques, navigating stereotype threat or implicit bias).


​In the short term, MAP provides a forum for students to discuss these topics and connect with interested peers. In the long term, we hope that MAP will contribute to improved department cultures and facilitate increased participation of underrepresented groups in academic philosophy. 

This chapter aims to provide a safe and positive space for undergraduate and graduate student minorities to be supported, heard, and encouraged in their academic goals.
