We strongly encourage submissions from individual who identify as members of underrepresented groups in philosophy.

  • Be in the area of social philosophy broadly construed (including intersections with ethics, philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics). We especially encourage topics related to the goals of MAP, which are to: “examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy.” Example topics include: implicit and explicit bias, stereotype threat, marginalization, solidarity, and activism.

  • Engage with philosophers or methodologies that are underrepresented in English-speaking philosophy departments.
