LSE Philosophy is committed to building a diverse, equitable and truly inclusive research and teaching environment. 

MAP at LSE Philosophy

Minorities And Philosophy (MAP) is an advocacy group for students and academics from a background that has been traditionally underrepresented in philosophy as well as allies: disabled, ethnic minorities, first generation university students, LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse, women, or working class.

Our MAP Chapter at the LSE is a thriving community. We run a mentorship programme for MAP community members, a reading group, grad school application workshops, socials and more. If you would like to join the MAP community at the LSE, please visit our Moodle Page, or the committee at Philosophy.Map.Committee@lse.ac.uk.

All students of our Department are automatically enrolled on our MAP Moodle page. If not, please get in touch!

About Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)

MAP’s mission is to address structural injustices in academic philosophy and to remove barriers that impede participation in academic philosophy for members of marginalized groups. Through their international organizing team and graduate student-led network of autonomous chapters around the world, they aim to examine and dismantle mechanisms that prevent students from marginalized groups from participating in academic philosophy, as well as to promote philosophical work done from marginalized perspectives, and help improve working conditions for scholars from marginalized backgrounds. More information about MAP international is available here.
