About Minorities and Philosophy

Loyola University Chicago's Philosophy Department is a new member of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)! MAP is a collection of students in philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. Each chapter aims broadly at addressing (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc, and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives. We will be organizing talks, panels, book clubs, excursions, and other events across the 2018-19 year. 

For more information, email graduate student organizer Rebecca Valeriano-Flores (mvalerianoflores@luc.edu).
