Minorities and Philosophy

September 29, 2022


The CEU Department of Philosophy is a member of MAP (Minorities and Philosophy), a graduate student-led initiative in English-speaking philosophy departments across the world. The initiative is meant to address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy, to provide a platform for discussion of theoretical issues concerning philosophy of gender/race/sexual orientation/class/disability etc., as well as to foster engagement with philosophy done from minority perspectives.

The department’s chapter is committed to the abovementioned objectives. The department has hosted meetings, discussions and talks on MAP-related topics, and is planning film screenings on such topics. Building an open atmosphere that allows for informal mentoring of students, with a special focus on dealing with problems of minority participation and implicit bias in the field is another commitment of the chapter.
