Humanities Research Institute (HRI)

On Friday December 9th, the Philosophy Department will be hosting its second annual Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) Lecture. The lecture is organised in conjunction with the Sheffield chapter of the MAP network.

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is an initiative created by students in English-speaking philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. In particular, it aims to address minority issues within academic philosophy; theoretical issues regarding the philosophy of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, disability, etc.; and philosophy done from minority perspectives. The annual lecture series is designed to help further these goals.

Dr Meena Dhanda

Her presentation will be followed by some informal discussion. The lecture will take place at 2:30pm in the Humanities Research Institute.

All are welcome to attend.
