Duquesne Minorities and Philosophy

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is a collection of students in English-speaking philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy (www.mapforthegap.com). Though primarily led by graduate students, MAP also relies on faculty support and encourages undergraduate participation. MAP is supported by the Marc Sanders Foundation.

Duquesne’s MAP chapter, often in collaboration with D-WiP (Duquesne Women in Philosophy), aims at addressing minority issues in the profession, theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc., and philosophy done from minority perspectives. Meeting formats include: external or internal speakers, reading groups, film screenings, mentorship events for undergraduates or graduates, panel discussions, and practical workshops.

If you are interested, please contact the Chapter Representative, Zach Slanger (slangerz@duq.edu). More information on reading schedules and events can be provided.
