What role can philosophy play in understanding and challenging injustice? What are the ways in which injustice forms in communities and social institutions? What sort of engagement is there between philosophy and major social institutions and social movements? What is the meaning of injustice in our current cultural, economic, social, and political climate? What are the practices used by activists, educators, and professionals in developing a community? The Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) chapter at Temple University is hosting a graduate student conference on March 23, 2019 that will address theoretical and practical questions like these. The conference will provide the opportunity for students to engage in philosophical research from all areas of philosophy, as well as its applications beyond the classroom.
