Minorities and Philosophy FSU is a graduate organization working to advance the position of minorities in the field of philosophy and to serve as an advocate and support network for minority philosophers and ideas. We are proud to serve as one of the 134 chapters of Minorities and Philosophy International.
The members of MAP FSU work at creating and maintaining an open, welcoming environment for anyone interested in the field of philosophy. MAP FSU is committed to allowing for the exchange of ideas on all topics of philosophical interest while promoting equal respect of all individuals, regardless of race, gender, class, sexuality, disability, culture or native language.
All MAP meetings will be held virtually for the Fall 2020 semester.
MAP meets at least once a month, and meeting times vary. Information on all meetings are sent the week prior to the meeting to all graduate and undergraduate students in the Philosophy department via email. However, non-majors can find information on future meetings by liking us on Facebook or following us on Instagram or Twitter. Specific meeting times and topics are also added to the department events calendar.
