Call for Abstracts: CUNY GC MAPshop

CUNY Graduate Center’s MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) Chapter 
invites submissions for MAPshop, a works-in-progress series.

MAPshop aims broadly at addressing (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc., and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives. These sessions provide a safe and respectful environment in which philosophers can receive feedback on works-in-progress in any sphere of philosophy. Papers will be distributed in advance, and each workshop will begin with a brief presentation by the author, followed by an hour of discussion.

If you’d like to present in either the Fall or Spring session of MAPshop,
please submit an abstract (~750 words) to cunygcmap@gmail.com
by November 10th, 2015.

About MAP:

MAP is a collection of students in English-speaking philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. Though primarily led by graduate students, MAP also relies on faculty support and encourages undergraduate participation. Within MAP’s network, students can exchange ideas, meet and support peers, and provide feedback to departments regarding climate. In the short term, MAP provides a forum for students to discuss these topics and connect with interested peers. In the long term, we hope that MAP will contribute to improved department cultures and facilitate increased participation of underrepresented groups in academic philosophy.
