The Philosophy Department at Temple University is excited to announce its recently founded student-led organization called Minorities and Philosophy (MAP). MAP was conceptualized in 2013 by graduate students at the University of Leeds. Today, there are over 80 chapters at varying academic institutions throughout the UK, Europe mainland, and the United States.
MAP at Temple aims to examine and address minority issues in academic philosophy. This includes reviewing and discussing philosophy done by minority individuals working in the academic arena, as well as work completed on issues of minorities within the field of philosophy.
Throughout the Fall 2017 semester MAP will be hosting several different events for the TU community. These will include a Meet & Greet, a monthly reading group, a double feature film screening, and a MAP-oriented workshop for graduate philosophy students and faculty members.
Please check back soon for more updates, including a complete calendar of events for the 2017-2018 school year!
