Call For Applications for NEWLAMP 2023

The Northeast Workshop to Learn About Multicultural Philosophy (NEWLAMP) is designed to equip philosophy professors with the competency to integrate modules on traditionally underrepresented areas of philosophy into their undergraduate philosophy courses. 

For its second edition, which will take place at Rutgers University in New Brunswick July 24-28, 2023, NEWLAMP will focus on Mesoamerican, Latin American, and Latinx moral, social, and political philosophy.

Three experts will lead the workshop:

·     Carlos Alberto Sanchez, San Jose State University

·     James Maffie, University of Maryland (Emeritus)

·     Stephanie Rivera Berruz, Marquette University

Twenty participants will be selected to attend the workshop. We encourage applications from all those who teach philosophy on a regular basis, including adjuncts, community college or regional university professors, and other underfunded faculty across North America. (Current graduate students who will begin a post-PhD teaching position in Fall 2023 or sooner are welcome to apply.) Financial aid will be available to help cover travel and lodging costs for those without available professional funds to cover attendance (exact proportion of coverage still to be determined). There is no registration fee.
