Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)

What We Do

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is an international organization comprised of students in English-speaking philosophy departments that aim to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy.

The Ohio State Chapter was established in Fall 2016. Since our establishment we have met monthly to examine topics relevant to the goals of MAP including implicit bias and disability. Additionally, we have co-sponsored Philosophy Colloquiua by Kevin Richardson (NCSU) and Luvell Anderson (Memphis).
