Minorities And Philosophy (MAP)

The Philosophy department has a MAP chapter which, among other things, organises an annual MAP lecture, to promote the work of minorities in philosophy. http://www.mapforthegap.com

The Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) annual lecture is 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 addresses 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

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