MAP Annual Lecture by Briana Toole (CUNY): “Holding Resistance Hostage. When Resistance Is Futile”

Friday, 1st of March
Hicks Building, Lecture Theatre 4

This year’s MAP lecture will be given by Briana Toole on the topic “Holding Resistance Hostage”.

The Department of Philosophy hosts the Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) annual lecture organised in conjunction with the Sheffield chapter of the MAP network, which seeks to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. It aims to address three closely related areas that, to date, have been largely overlooked by mainstream Anglophone philosophers and philosophy departments:

1. Minority issues within academic philosophy
2. Theoretical issues regarding philosophy of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, and more
3. Philosophy done from minority perspectives

In encouraging awareness and discussion of these topics, MAP hopes to foster improved department cultures and promote the participation of previously underrepresented groups in philosophy.
