MINORITIES AND PHILOSOPHY AT PENN

MAP’s mission is to address structural injustices in academic philosophy and to remove barriers that impede participation in academic philosophy for members of marginalized groups.

MAP-Penn is one of MAP’s autonomous chapters, led by graduate students at Penn Philosophy.

MAP-Penn’s main initiative is hosting a conference within the domain of MAP. While historically we've done this as an annual event, in recent years we've moved to a biannual schedule. Previous iterations of this conference have focused on Non-Western Philosophies, Global Feminisms, and Inclusive Pedagogies & Methodologies. This year’s conference is focused on aspects of Philosophy of Race.This includes, but is not limited to, notions of race and ethnicity in philosophy of science, in philosophy of law, in the history of philosophy, in social and political philosophy, in one’s personal experiences as a philosopher, in canon (re)formation, and in teaching practices.

Please register using the RSVP button above and we will email you with the Zoom Webinar details. If you already RSVP'd and received no communication from us, this likely means that your email address was misspelled during registration. Please RSVP again.
