Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)

MAP logoAbout MAP

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is a network of graduate students, in English-speaking philosophy departments, committed to examining and addressing issues of minority participation and underrepresentation in academic philosophy. Though primarily led by graduate students, MAP also relies on faculty support and encourages undergraduate participation.

The MAP chapter at Glasgow University aims to:

  • Support a culture of openness for philosophy students at Glasgow
  • Provide a forum to examine and address minority participation and underrepresentation issues as they relate to the study of philosophy at Glasgow
  • Explore the wider minority participation and underrepresentation issues in academic philosophy
  • Foster ties with existing initiatives within the department and beyond, that are already addressing issues of participation faced by minority and underrepresented groups, including gender, race, native-language, sexual orientation, class and disability minorities, among others.

If you would like to discuss any of the issues mentioned here or would like more information about MAP at Glasgow, please contact Han Edgoose, Ross Patrizio, Clara Wisenfeld Paine, or Joshua Cox at glasgowmap@gmail.com
