We are seeking paper abstracts and proposals for mini-workshops or advice sessions related to this theme. Possible topics include sexual harassment, advising and mentorship dynamics, cultivating ecologies of support, division of emotional and professional labor in academia, the effects of implicit bias in academic spaces, and other related topics. Each session will last for about 20-30 minutes, followed by Q&A.
We particularly encourage submissions by members of under-represented groups in philosophy and by people at all stages of their career.
Abstracts and proposals should be no more than 1,000 words and should be sent as a PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Pacific APA Submission” by Feb 1, 2019. You will hear back from us by mid-February.
You can contact us at email@example.com with any questions!
MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) is a collection of students in philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. Though primarily led by graduate students, MAP also relies on faculty support and encourages undergraduate participation. Currently, MAP has 123 chapters throughout the world, including the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Hungary, and South Africa.
The Pacific APA will be held at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, BC. Our session is tentatively scheduled for Friday, April 19, 7-10 pm.http://www.mapforthegap.com/home/cfa-pacific-apa-map-group-session-creating-inclusive-spaces
