Loyola University Chicago’s MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) chapter will be hosting a Virtual Retreat!

The theme of the free retreat is living philosophy. Participants will learn skills and issues related not only to academic philosophy but also philosophy-informed activism, organizing, and daily living.

We look forward to receiving applications from Chicago-area undergraduate students who are members of traditionally marginalized groups (which we understand as including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled/differently abled folks, and women) who want not only to explore academic philosophy, but also to seek the ways in which philosophy informs our lives, our relationships, and our communities beyond academia. 

Applications are due May 15th!

Deadline extended! The new application deadline is May 29th. Please use this Google Forms link to apply: 

The event will feature Perry Zurn (American University) as the Keynote Speaker, as well as Faculty Instructors from Chicago-area schools: Avery Smith (Loyola University Chicago); Eyo Ewara (Loyola University Chicago); Rafael Vizcaíno (DePaul University); Rebecca Scott (Harper College).
