NameMinorities and Philosophy
Description

The MAP chapter at Reed College aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. MAP at Reed collaborates with the Philosophical Society to address (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc, and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives.



This academic year, we will hold Q&A meetings for people of color, women, gender nonconforming, and queer students. We will host student presentations from the Philosophical Society on topics such as philosophy of race, feminist epistemology, etc. And we will use departmental, MAP and student body funds to bring speakers to campus with the goal of exposing the greater student body to philosophy done from minority perspectives.
