The Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) chapter of the joint programme in Philosophy of the University of Stirling and University of St Andrews (SASP) invites engaged participants to the one-day workshop  ‘Silencing, Prejudice and Resistance’ on June 24th 2019 at the University of Stirling. We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker is Prof Mari Mikkola. The deadline for submissions is April 30th 2019.  

The workshop will feature talks related to the conference theme. This includes but is not limited to work in:

  • Feminist Philosophy
  • Feminist and Social Epistemology
  • Epistemic Virtues and Vices in Academy
  • Gender and Oppression
  • Diversifying Philosophy
  • Public Philosophy
  • Inclusive Pedagogy

We especially encourage applications from underrepresented groups in philosophy. Each talk will last for approximately 30 minutes, followed by 20 minutes for discussion.

At the end of the conference, all conference attendees are invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on ‘Activism and Philosophy’. Our aim is to bring together representatives of MAP chapters across UK universities and beyond to share our activist experience, to forge new ideas and develop collaborative projects in the future to advance the objective of the MAP initiative. We also hope to connect marginalised philosophers across the country, especially in areas with no active MAP chapters.

Attendance is free and all are welcome! Register here.

The event is sponsored by the Scots Philosophical Association, the Marc Sanders Foundation, the Analysis Trust and the University of Stirling.
