Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) at WMU
Who Are We?
MAP is an organization that promotes (i) the work of minority and underrepresented groups in philosophy, (ii) work on underrepresentation (e.g., stereotype threat, the "pipeline" problem in philosophy), and (iii) work on topics that are marginalized within philosophy (e.g., sexuality, race and gender, prison abolition, disability, etc.).
Over the course of the semester, our chapter will be organizing a number of lunches with leaders in the WMU community whose research and/or activism relates to our mission, graduate and undergraduate student presentations, reading groups, philosophy talks, and social outings.
If you're interested in getting involved with our chapter of MAP, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
