The Warwick Chapter aims to raise awareness, provide support and foster the understanding and philosophical assessment of MAP-related themes through a variety of events and activities. See below for details of this year's programme.
There is also a Mentoring Scheme, which works to pair undergraduate students who want guidance and support throughout their degree with postgraduate mentors. For those interested in serving either as a mentor or a mentee, please contact TBC.
Call for Organising Committee Members 2021-22 - join our team!
We invite PG and UG volunteers for next year’s MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) Organising Committee. Warwick has benefited from having a lively and successful MAP chapter, and we want to ensure that continues for next year. MAP organises events of broad interest to students, faculty and staff, all aimed at promoting equality and inclusiveness. For instance, MAP has organised the talk happening on Friday 7th of May 4-6 pm, with Adriana Clavel-Vazquez (Oxford) speaking on racialized bodies and aesthetic appreciation. A Midlands MAP Festival is running in May and June on Philosophy, Academia and Mental Health, and a CineMAP series was initiated this year. See the Warwick MAP below to get an idea of MAP past and present activities.
Warwick MAP has to date been run by PG students; we want to open leadership roles to UG students as well. If you are interested, please contact Giulia Lorenzi (firstname.lastname@example.org), current MAP Coordinator, and Eileen John (email@example.com), Chair of the Equality and Welfare Committee.
Here a longest version of our call with some suggested roles.
Events organised in collaboration with other departmental groups, MAP chapters, societies or entities that promote equality and inclusiveness.
