MAP is a worldwide network of students based in English-speaking philosophy departments that aims to facilitate the participation of members from underrepresented groups in academic philosophy. MAP chapters are led by graduate students, but also rely on faculty support and encourage undergraduate participation.
Aims & Activities
MAP aims to address
(a) Issues of underrepresentation in the profession,
(b) Theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, etc
(c) Philosophy done from minority perspectives, in order to contribute to more inclusive department cultures and to facilitate increased participation of underrepresented groups in academic philosophy.
With this aim in mind, MAP chapters host a variety of events, at which students have the opportunity to discuss the above topics and to connect with interested peers. MAP chapters also work alongside departments to promote a more supportive and inclusive environment.
