MINORITIES AND PHILOSOPHY AT PENN

MAP’s mission is to address structural injustices 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. Previous iterations of this conference have focused on Non-Western Philosophies, Global Feminisms, Inclusive Pedagogies & Methodologies, and Philosophy of Race.


Our 2022 conference is focused on aspects of Philosophy of Disability and Philosophy of Illness. This includes, but is not limited to, disability- and/or illness-related conceptual and normative issues in philosophy of law, in medical ethics, in bioethics, in general ethics, in the history of philosophy, in social and political philosophy, in social epistemology, in one’s personal experiences as a philosopher, and in teaching practices.

The conference is organized by Sara Purinton, Jacqueline Wallis, Lisa Martinez-Katout, Kate Nicole Hoffman, Lauren Perry, Youngbin Yoon and Tiina Rosenqvist.
