We are pleased to announce an organizational meeting of the CUNY GC chapter of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP – http://www.mapforthegap.com) on Thursday, December 5th, from 4:15-5pm, in Room 5307 (which says both “Science Studies” and “Study of Religion” on the front).
MAP is a collection of students in North American philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. However, the format (and name) of MAP at CUNY is completely up to us to determine. So the purpose of this meeting is simply to introduce MAP and exchange ideas about what it would be useful to do under its aegis.
If you have any ideas about how MAP could work for CUNY or any interest in issues surrounding minority participation in academic philosophy, please stop by.
Thanks in advance!
