Philosophy and/of Inclusion

What can philosophy do for inclusion? 

The CEU chapter of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is hosting a two-day symposium organized around the topic of underrepresented or oppressed demographics within philosophy and academia, and society in general.

Through presented work and facilitated workshops, we want this symposium to highlight standpoint specific thinking and experiences addressing the issues of inequality and inclusion, whether in the theoretical realm or in specific reference to the institutional and professional aspects of academic work. Core focus areas are gender, race, class/economic access, and ability. Some examples may be work on the decolonization of philosophy/academia, feminist and queer critiques, standpoint epistemology, qualitative and quantitative research into the current state of inclusion in academic space, and firsthand accounts of one's experience as a practitioner.
