Our department has a MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) chapter. As such, we especially encourage submissions from members of groups underrepresented in the philosophy profession including, but not limited to: people of color, women, queer and gender non-conforming people, people from economically disadvantaged groups, and people with disabilities. The conference venue is fully wheelchair accessible.  Individuals in need of visual or auditory accommodations are encouraged to attend; both in-person and Zoom presentations will be made accessible provided adequate notice.
