This event is internal to Western University and affiliate colleges, applicants must be undergraduate students at Western.

Reflecting the commitments of both MAP and the Climate Committee, the theme of the conference will broadly focus on any of the following areas: philosophy of gender, race, sexuality, class, disability, Indigenous issues, settler colonialism, etc. Students are encouraged to submit work relating to any of these areas of philosophy. Although papers should be philosophical, authors need not be majoring/minoring in philosophy to apply.
