Guidelines for consideration:
1. EITHER the topic of the paper is relevant to MAP's mission to "examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy." This includes but is not limited to:
· Topics relevant to questions concerning marginalization and oppression along the axes of race, gender, class, etc.;
· Engagement with philosophy written by members of underrepresented groups;
· Traditions that are in general considered to be underrepresented
OR, regardless of topic, the author of the paper self-identifies as a member of an underrepresented group in professional philosophy.
2. Include a brief (200-500 word) diversity statement addressing i) how the author's experience of diversity has shaped them personally, academically, or professionally, and ii) (especially if the author doesn't self-identify as belonging to an underrepresented group) the author's commitment to diversity and inclusion, including how the author has already put this commitment into practice or how they plan to later on.
