DescriptionRecently, there has been an influx of much needed philosophical discussion of the marginalisation and exclusion of certain social groups in philosophy. Philosophy of race, disability and feminism are attracting more attention and beginning to be seen as serious philosophical work. From statistical analyses, it has also become clear that problems of under-representation seem to be particularly acute for philosophy in comparison with other disciplines. In this talk, we outline the methods and practices adopted by Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) in order to apply theoretical philosophical ideas to the philosophical community itself and try to combat prejudice and bias head on. We discuss the outcomes of certain approaches and projects and share what we have learned and our hopes for the future.
