MAP Warwick is your local chapter of an international postgraduate-led network dedicated to addressing structural injustices in academic philosophy and removing barriers that impede participation in academic philosophy for members of marginalized groups.
MAP aims to raise awareness, provide support, and foster the understanding and philosophical assessment of MAP-related themes (equality, diversity, and inclusion) through a variety of events and activities.
MAP representatives work within the department to ensure minority voices and perspectives are heard. To get in touch, email your representatives at email@example.com or find us on XLink opens in a new window (formerlyTwitter) @map_warwick.

2023/2024 Focus: Mental Health in Philosophy
Informed by student feedback gained last academic year, our primary focus for this year is mental health in philosophy.
Mental health is a universal phenomenon, yet those who experience mental illness often face stigma and discrimination, particularly those from minority groups. Aware of the potential negative impacts of poor mental health on participation within Warwick's academic and philosophical community, MAP is seeking ways to facilitate awareness and change within the department to mitigate the difficulties faced by students dealing with mental health issues.
Over the course of the year, MAP will be hosting a variety of events centred on this theme and will prioritise intersectional experiences and concerns in our efforts. We are always open to suggestions and feedback, so please get in touch and share your thoughts with us.
